Get Ready To Suffer (And Be Very Glad!)
1 Peter 3:8-18, 4:1-4, 12-19
The idea of suffering for our faith is something that in the present climate seems to be becoming a more immediate possibility. The same was true of the first readers of 1 Peter, and Peter’s advice to them is incredibly relevant to us today, especially the seemingly strange exhortation- to ‘be very glad’.
