A Reconciled Response

June 28, 2020

Emily Vermilya - 1 Peter 1:6-7; 3:13-18; 4:12-16,19. In a world filled with suffering, we're often tempted to go searching for the cause of such trials and hardships. But Peter’s instruction to the first century church encourages looking beyond reasons for why suffering exists and emphasizes the significance of how we respond to such difficulties in this life. Such a perspective change impacts our witness, our ability to cope with life’s challenges, and influences our understanding of the temporal nature of suffering.
