Scripture text: 1 Peter 1: 10-13         Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland          Date: 4 February 2018   

Our ongoing study in 1 Peter has thus far shown Christians to be heirs to an imperishable inheritance kept safe in heaven, and and also to be a people who remain joyful in the midst of suffering. 

In our study this week we learn that Christians are also privileged in three particular ways: in witnessing the fulfillment of what was long predicted by prophets, in experiencing the promised indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and in receiving God’s grace in our lives in a manner amazing even to angels.
