The Apostle Peter is encouraging the Church with this important truth, by extension to you and me; Jesus Christ died for us. Why is that such a big deal? There is an eternity after we die. What we experience on earth, the Apostle Paul calls, are momentary troubles, but what we experience after we die is forever. Our Heavenly Father cares about what happens with us on earth, He really does. But we need to keep our perspective on the line of eternity and not the dot of present time. Let’s look again at what the Apostle Peter, writes about Jesus Christ his Lord and Savior. The truth and authority of Jesus Christ affects all parts of our lives.
