Peter recognized that tough times were ahead for his readers. But rather than these trials being a sign that God had forsaken them, he admonishes them to consider them to be God’s refining fire, able to purify them and make them even more fit to demonstrate the glory of their Savior.

And in the midst of the storm, Peter reminds them to run to Christ, rather than away. As in the story of Ruth, the safest place to be when the storm clouds roll in is under the wings of the Almighty, who always welcomes His children into the safety of His love.
