Orthodox Lutheran Father Quote of the Day

1 Peter

He had two purposes especially in this Epistle: (1) to bear witness to the converted Jews that the teaching regarding the grace of God through Christ, which they had embraced by faith and in the confession of which they were standing fast, is the one, indisputable way of salvation, heavenly truth, and immovable doctrine. (2) To exhort them both to persevere steadfastly in this faith and to live a life worthy of that confession and pleasing to God.
