Peter was in Jesus’ inner circle and shared many intimate moments with Him. Over the course of several years Peter was transformed from a rugged fisherman to someone who would die for his faith in Jesus. Jesus knew what He was getting when He chose Peter, and He knew what He could become. The same is true for us. Jesus knows us and wants to transform us as we read and obey the Bible. As you read 1 and 2 Peter this week remind yourself about God’s grace and power to change us. Also, discover truths from the Word that you can put into practice during this transformation process. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon. Please consider the questions below regarding the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups.
