Born again according to His great mercy
Chosen to be His own
Called out of darkness into His light
Ransomed from the futility of sin by His precious blood
These are the words of a man who just couldn’t get over the extravagance of God’s grace and the amazing truth about salvation. Is Peter’s sense of wonder and gratitude one that you share? If not, how can you live out of the same hope that Peter reflected to the world?
In our study, we’ll start by looking at the life of Peter – the circumstances, choices and events that made him into the man who would write those words about salvation by grace. Once we put together what we know about Peter’s life, then we’ll spend some time in the 2 letters Peter wrote to the early church. Knowing who Peter was and what he’d been through will give us insight into what he wrote and will open our eyes and hearts so that we too can be amazed by God’s grace.
