Three Facts True of Every Christian

1 Peter 1:1–2  (ID: 1454)

Peter’s first epistle addresses numerous questions that Christians face in their day-to-day lives. Because it was written to encourage believers, remind them of God’s grace, and exhort them to stand fast in the truth, it is a rich resource for all who study it. In his introduction to the epistle, Alistair Begg acquaints us with the writer and his audience, reminding us that, like them, we are chosen by God, cleansed by the blood of Christ, and sanctified by the Holy Spirit so that we may live as God’s people in a hostile world.
