January 5 – 1 Peter 1:10-12

Peter penned his letter (1 Peter) to believers scattered across the world when he was in the later stages of his life. As he looked back upon all that had taken place, he commented upon the reason God anointed and chose prophets to serve. They foretold God’s salvation in Jesus centuries before the Messiah was even born. Perhaps Peter understood his own time with Jesus as an opportunity to tell the good news of God’s grace.
