The Epistle of Peter serves as a reminder to cling tenaciously to the blessed hope. The gospel is a living hope even in the midst of trials and tribulations, and this passage was written to a young church that was experiencing increasing persecution. And Lydia Brownback encourages the young women to be firm in their faith and to always put their hope in the Lord Jesus Christ through her book, 1-2 Peter (Flourish Bible Study). It is a highly recommended book for devotions because it has ten weeks' worth of conversational lessons that will encourage self-reflection on the part of the leader. Additionally, it can be used as small-group resources. Indeed, as we live in this dying world, let us hold on to our blessed hope in the Lord Jesus Christ.
