Text: 1 Peter 5: 6-11
Peter is writing to Christians who are suffering terribly for the name of Jesus, so he weaves the theme of suffering throughout his letter. Not many of us will be persecuted like Peter’s original audience, but we will all suffer as we face our own challenges, trials, and struggles in this life. God wants to meet us in our suffering and for us to give him our hearts as we suffer. In this passage, Peter shares three ways we can respond when times get difficult.
