A message from the apostle Peter, a first century Christian. He was jailed and beaten; watched his fellow Christians die; and watched his church scatter. He said that because of God‘s great mercy, we have been born again. We have a priceless inheritance that is kept for us in heaven which is beyond reach of change or decay. He said that our souls cannot be harmed when we are saved.
He told us to be glad because wonderful joy awaits us ahead; that even though we have to endure trials ahead, these trials will show that our faith is genuine. When our faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring us praise and glory in the end. He tells us the reward for trusting Him (God) will be the salvation of our souls, and eternity with God (1 Peter 1: 3-9).
This is the good news!
