SimplyRevised seeks to encourage, equip, grow and strengthen your faith in the Lord.
I believe for many of us, reading the Bible is challenging--even if the act of reading comes easily to you. The Bible is a large book. However, as Christians, we should not let the size or even the complexities of the Bible discourage us from reading the Bible.

music by Eric Gwin:
1 Peter is written to Christians experiencing trials and difficulties. Peter is writing to encourage and strengthen their faith. In our last lesson, we considered the importance of hope and that our hope in Christ is untouchable. Our hope in Christ cannot be taken away or pried away from our hands. Continuing in our lessons (1 Peter 1:13-25), we notice that hope in Christ is not only a future hope but a hope for today as well.
Following Jesus does not mean a life without difficulties and hardships. As a people, as humans, we experience setbacks, loss, pain, trials, and hardships. Some experiences are common to us all. However, following Christ and his example of love, humility, and compassion, following his example of a life honoring the Father, will bring other challenges as those who stand out from the backdrop of the world.

1 Peter 1:1-2
We are beginning a new series as we explore the letter of 1 Peter together. 1 Peter is a circular letter. It was written to churches that were scattered throughout the region of Asia Minor, modern-day Turkey. These Christians faced hostility and harassment because of their faith in Jesus (2:12, 3:16, 4:16). With the help of Silas (5:12), Peter wrote to encourage these Christians in their suffering.
