Last week, we watched as Peter unfolded a picture for his audience of their amazing inheritance in Jesus. He calls it a living hope. A type of hope anchored in the past, secured in the future and experienced in the present. This week, Peter will challenge these suffering believers to respond to this type of hope in bold ways. He’s going to challenge these believers to not only believe the right stuff about God, but to actually live it out in the furnace of suffering. Peter lays out 5 responses to living hope. Practical and yet difficult to live out truths like; getting your mind right, hope fully, chase holiness, fear rightly and love fiercely. As we learn to live out these astonishing truths, we begin to overcome trials and suffering by keeping our eyes on the source of all hope--Jesus Christ.
