On episode 131 of the Adorned Podcast we jump into the book of 1 Peter by looking at the context and the author. We then zoom in on verses one and two of the first chapter. It might not be a lot of text, but there is so much rich doctrine packed into this first sentence. Election, foreknowledge, and sanctification are just a few of the topics Peter is addressing. We would love for you to tune in as we study God’s Word together!
“The central exhortation of this entire epistle can be summed up as “trust and obey,” especially in the face of suffering.” – Reformation Study Bible
“The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.” -Tim Keller
“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.” -Tim Keller
