1 Peter 4:12–19
One of our greatest old hymns, “How Firm a Foundation,” includes a verse that begins, “When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie, / My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply.” The line finds its origin in this passage from Peter. Beautiful lyrics, yet much more than that . . . true words that are frequently forgotten when the blast furnace of suffering becomes our lot. Peter’s instruction came from a broad base of understanding. Not only was he personally experienced in the crucible, he lived in an era when Christians paid a price for their faith. This, therefore, is no theoretical treatise based on pious platitudes but very real truth designed to help believers get through the fire of affliction.
