Discussion Question 1
1 Peter 1:7-9 says: 7 These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Describe the salvation of your soul.
Discussion Question 2
Peter is writing to people who are experiencing difficult and oppressing times. How can we trust in God even when things are not going well?
