1 Peter 1:13 - 1:17
Steve Gregg provides a commentary on 1 Peter 1:13-17, in which he notes that salvation will be revealed at the end of the world when Jesus comes. Although trials are not usually something to rejoice about, Christians are called to rejoice despite them, knowing that their faith will be refined in the process. Christians are encouraged to trust and believe, even when they cannot see God, and to rejoice inexpressibly through times of trial. Despite persecution, believers are called to leap for joy as there will be a great reward in heaven.
