Godliness and salvation: Letters of Peter
KYB 2020 Term 4
The Apostle Peter, who once famously denied Jesus, had now become a courageous, influential leader in the early church. The believers in the first century were facing both physical and spiritual dangers in persecution and false teaching. In light of this reality, how should they live as believers? What assurance did they have in Christ? What truths did they need to hold on to at all costs?
So, Peter writes to the early believers. He offers answers to these questions so believers can be certain their faith has a firm foundation in the truth.
Of course, we today also face similar trials of persecution and the dangers of false teaching. We too want to know the answers to these questions.
Peter’s letters hold timeless truths that will encourage and challenge us — and above all spur us on to godliness and living holy lives with joy.
What KYB groups are saying
“Very appropriate to what is happening in churches today as we are closer than ever to the ‘last days’. We were encouraged to be alert for false teaching and those who fail to produce the fruit expected from leaders in the church, as well as making sure we are walking in the truth.”
