Confirming the faith Written by one of the most prominent disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, Peter's two Epistles focus on the commitment and the faith of Christians as they continue to live and serve God regardless of conditions or circumstances.The theme of the first letter is Peter's exhortation to believers to remain true to their Savior, despite their suffering at the hands of the Roman emperor. Christians were fleeing Rome and Peter wrote to Christians who were scattered throughout Asia Minor. In these hard times, underscored Peter, Christians should remain steadfast in the strength of the Holy Spirit. (1 Peter 5:9-11) The first letter provides much needed assurance to believers that, amid persecutions and suffering, there is hope.In the second letter Peter defined his relationship with Jesus Christ as both bondservant and apostle. As Christ's bondservant, he declared his submission and obedience to the demands, direction, and guidance of his Lord. Wherever the Lord called him to go, whatever his Master asked him to do, Peter would obey. As Christ's apostle, Peter identified his God-given commission to go into all the world and make disciples. He addressed this letter to those who, like him, had obtained the same gift of faith by the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives. This faith was given to the believers by the grace of God through the righteousness of Jesus Christ.Two powerful and inspired letters sent by Peter the apostle of Jesus Christ to all believers to confirm their faith in Jesus Christ, to encourage them to grow in knowledge and understanding, and mature in the knowledge of the Truth so that they might be able to give defense for the lasting hope they have in Jesus Christ and His finished work on Calvary.
Practical Christianity Foundation is a not-for-profit research Foundation organized in 1997 for the purpose of producing an easy-to-read devotional commentary series on the books of the Bible. Our goal is to encourage instruction and devotional meditation for individuals and small groups in matters of life and faith in God through His Son Jesus Christ in a study of God's Holy Word.Practical Christianity Foundation offers the global Christian community a simple, easy-to-read devotional commentary on the books of the Bible to encourage and nurture biblical instruction and meditation. In both the written and electronic editions, passages of verse-by-verse commentary are developed immediately following each verse and are summarized by notes and applications designed to apply the focus of the passage to the life and faith of those who follow Jesus Christ. Both the electronic and print versions of the Devotional Commentaries offer the reader a valuable resource, rich in godly and Christ-centered substance necessary for knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and worship.The comments are interpretive. However, the essence of the work is devotional. Each paragraph is a result of the collaborative deliberation that comes from deep personal meditation, intentional research, and faithful application arising from the conviction that the Bible is the word of the Lord to His people. God's Word is reliable, trustworthy, and God-revealing. We believe that when the Bible speaks, God Himself speaks. It is the Truth that brings sinners to repentance and guides their journey throughout their redeemed lives in Christ.We pray that this commentary series would lead unbelievers to Christ and enrich the lives of those who have been redeemed. We pray that each believer walk in the joy of the Lord, enduring the troubles of this world through the peace that only God can give. In all things, we lift up the Name of Jesus to the glory of God the Father and continue to humbly pray that He would graciously and mercifully reveal Himself through the study of His Word.
