Most of you have probably heard of Elizabeth Elliott who was the wife of Jim Elliott. Jim Elliott was one of five missionaries who was killed in Ecuador by the Acua Indians. Elizabeth Elliott has gone through some tremendous trials in her life, not only the loss of one husband, but two. Even at the date of this writing, she is suffering with Alzheimers. She has certainly been a role model of suffering for all of us to follow. She once said something that I have never forgotten, she said, No suffering is wasted. No suffering is wasted, do you believe that? Peter did! He believed there is a purpose to suffering, to persecution, and he ends his letter by sharing with his readers just what that purpose is. We have come to the end of Peters letter to these persecuted Christians, and see Peter, the apostle of hope, end on a hopeful note, as he reminds his readers that God is in control. This is a hopeful end, and a great way to end his letter to these readers. Lets read these words together. In our lesson, we will cover the verses 10-14 of chapter five. This lesson will be a great source of encouragement as Peter gives his readers six reasons to retain a hopeful attitude under fiery trials, and they all with start with the letter G. Join us as we finish this wonderful epistle of 1 Peter together!
