The young Peter was not the sort to let injustice pass, and was quick to stand up for himself. Now he reminds us that living in peace is a higher priority in our relationships, and opens God’s face to us.
Esther Scholes continues our LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF series looking at Peter’s letters – 1 Peter and 2 Peter. In this message Ian is looking at 1 Peter 3:1-12.
Peter had always been a family man, and seems to have worked closely with his wife.
