My Dear Sisters of Gold River Calvary Chapel:
I am so looking forward to studying the Apostle Peter’s first letter together. Peter wrote it to encourage his brothers and sisters who were wandering as exiles for their faith. We could write our own names in Peter’s opening of this letter, as every believer is a pilgrim and sojourner – this world is not our home.
No, we look forward to our heavenly home that awaits us. Our inheritance is “imperishable, undefiled and unfading,” kept in heaven for us. Our hope is a living hope because our hope is not a wish – it is a person. Because Jesus lives, we will live forever too!
