Sunday, June 2, 2019. First Baptist Church, Burlington, Kansas. Guest speaker Mike Guinn. The Apostle In 1 Peter 1:3-6 we read of the surety of our salvation. In these passages the Greek word for hope means favorable, confident, exaptation, unlike in our usage of hope means I would like it to happen. Peter also tells us this this hope is giving by the promise of Jesus’ resurrection.
