All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Often those with the deepest hurt appreciate grace most. Which may explain why Peter, the apostle who once denied his Savior, wrote a remarkable letter that celebrated the hope and grace found in Christ. Based on Warren Wiersbe's "Be Hopeful," this eight-week of study of 1 Peter contains fresh insights that help connect God's truth with everyday life.
