Even in the the midst of hardships and pain, Peter reminds us – and the Church in Asia-minor – that GOD THE FATHER KNOWS US in our circumstances, GOD THE SPIRIT CHANGES US in our circumstances, and GOD THE SON MOTIVATES US for obedience in our circumstances. All of our situations – good or bad – are never interruptions, but invitations to experience the grace of our God who knows us, changes us, and motivates us.
