1 PETER. For young Christians facing ridicule in a pagan world, it was difficult to focus on their "living hope." The Apostle Peter wrote to remind these hard-pressed Christians of their rich identities in Christ, and to encourage them to face their sufferings with Christ-like character. Peter's heartfelt challenge to practical Christianity will inspire you to meet your trials with the same confidence in "the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ." LifeChange Series: Christians have a lifelong goal: to become like Christ. This involves change, and change isn't always easy. But the more you know of God's purposes for you, the more you can experience His joy and participate in His plan. The LifeChange Series of Bible studies on books of the Bible can help you grow in Christlikeness through a life-changing encounter with God's Word. You'll benefit in these important ways: 1) You'll gain a firm understanding of the book-its historical context, purpose, structure, and meaning; 2) You'll apply its powerful, relevant wisdom to needs and issues you are currently working through; and 3) You'll acquire personal study skills and a thirst to return to the book on your own-so you can keep going deeper into its life-transforming truths.
