1 Peter | Hope in Hard Times

21 Coptic Christians dressed in orange knelt with their hands tied behind their back. Behind them stood masked ISIS soldiers dressed in black brandishing razor-sharp swords. Moments later those dressed in orange shouted “O Lord Jesus!” as shimmering blades sliced their throats. Their blood poured into the sea. Most Christians in the west will not face the choice to turn from their faith or lose their life. Every Christian will face times of suffering that can lead to such despair that they are tempted to walk away from God. How do we weather these storms of the soul? Where do we find hope in life’s hard times? The book of 1 Peter is packed with God’s wisdom on weathering these storms.
