From Series: "1 Peter"

Peter is the apostle I most identify with. He is the right-hand man of Jesus who often gets it—and commonly stumbles. He takes, in my reckoning, close to 15 years to truly understand the grace of Jesus. And, when he does, he writes a letter like 1 Peter—follow Jesus, where you are—He is the cause and template of your life as God’s mob. The context is that of God’s mob scattered, right throughout Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey). They are regarded as strange and different, misfits in a Roman Empire that ‘killed’ their Lord! And Peter exhorts them: ‘this is the true grace of God. Take your stand in it!’ (1 Peter 5:12)
