Our gracious saviour
Every sincere believer needs the highest reminder of Jesus' grace to help us move through the challenges of being a Christian in a world opposed to Jesus’ way. We can choose to see ourselves as causalities in the clash between the world and the kingdom of God or as people on the winning team receiving grace through Jesus our saviour. Take this to heart, God knows what you go through and uses your unjustified suffering to fulfill his plans. Despite public disapproval, the church continues to take root and grow beside the competing ideas our culture offers because God’s grace gives meaning to any suffering we endure for Jesus. In Christ, you can take the unfair criticism, handle the extra pressure, manage the social rejection, suffer the injustices all because salvation delivers grace to you. No trial can remove the grace of salvation. So, as we study 1 Peter 3:18-22 we will learn to lean fully on our gracious saviour, Jesus Christ.
