In his first epistle, Peter encouraged believers who were suffering persecution from a hostile culture. To stand firm, they would need to understand that their true security was in eternity, purchased for them by the blood of Christ. Christians are citizens of heaven, and they are aliens and strangers on the earth. When we learn to see things from this heavenly point of view, all that happens on earth takes on a different light.

In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg reminds us of the heavenly hope that the Lord Jesus has obtained for us. We look forward to an eternal inheritance that cannot pass away, and so we need not despair when we experience loss, suffering, and persecution on earth. Walking in faith means looking to our Lord for comfort, obeying His commands, and growing in knowledge of the Word. As we understand who Jesus is and what He’s done for us, our lives will bear the fruit of that knowledge.
