And Even If…

November 17, 2013 | Series: 1 Peter. Scripture: 1 Peter. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

1 Peter 3:9-18
A faithfully biblical theology of suffering can go off the rails, veering into triumphalism on the one hand, or masochism on the other. However, our text in 1 Peter, not to mention the whole of the letter, plus the whole counsel of the Bible argue against either set of errors. As Peter continues to flesh out for us the subject of suffering as a believer, we are brought once again to God’s marvelous and gracious designs in history, as He makes Himself known to us and in us and through us, for the glory of His name.
