Peace to All in Christ

1 Peter is a letter of the Bible that is full of suffering and struggle, but we must always remembers that it begins in praise and ends with peace. Peter's benediction of peace at the end of his letter is no mere rhetorical flourish. Peace is well-being that envelopes our lives when we are friends with God and experience his salvation, and it is for all those who are in Christ. Is this peace yours?
