This study of 1 & 2 Peter is a one of encouragement and warning. The theme "called" is followed in each lesson--"called" for a purpose, to be hopeful, to be holy, to a new identity, to submission in the world, to complete devotion to Christ, to live for God, to eternal glory, to rely on god's provision to combat false teaching, to prepare for the Lord's return, to persevere in faith, and more. This booklet is part of the Fisherman's Bible Study Guides, with almost 60 book, character, topical, or core studies to choose from. Each study features built in leadership helps and a flexible format you can use in all kinds of settings.
The letters of Peter and Jude challenge you to recognize your identity as a chosen friend of God--and therefore, to live a holy life. Originally addressed to persecuted believers of the first century, these words encourage you to face trials with a living hope, certain of Christ's return, and warn you of the danger of false teaching and spiritual lethargy--advice as timely today as it was for the early Christians. If you are serious about understanding God's purpose for you, you've come to the right place.
