Finishing Strong

Hope In Exile

This week we wrap-up our study through this incredible little letter from the apostle Peter to suffering Christians almost two millennia ago. Peter has used this letter primarily to encourage believers in their suffering. He closes out his letter by giving us several keys to finishing the race of life strong for the glory of King Jesus. We learn that humbly trusting God through confusing seasons of pain actually leads to our exaltation in due time. We are reminded that God cares for us, and so we are to cast our anxieties on Him, instead of internalizing fears and trying to solve problems on our own. Peter encourages us to live life with our head on a swivel, because we have a real enemy who is in the business of destroying lives. And we are reminded that in the end, Jesus wins. And on that victorious day of His 2nd coming, He will right all wrongs and make all things new for those who love and follow Him. And because of that, we can walk confidently through this life of brokeness and pain knowing that only glory awaits us forever and ever!
