Peter begins his first letter with words that reveal the Trinity as well as any written. He describes the collaborative, sovereign, and powerful role of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our new birth, transformational process, and future glory, reminding us we are strangers here but not where we’re going.  And then he reminds us that our walks of faith are being tested by trials of many kinds, refined like gold purified by fire, and yet far more precious in worth.  The outcome, he encourages, will result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus one day returns as well as the goal of our faith realized–the salvation of our souls.
