1 Peter 1:1 1Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who are [elect exiles of the Dispersion] in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
1 Peter 1:2 [according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,] [in the sanctification of the Spirit,] [for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood:] [May grace and peace be multiplied to you.]
Key Idea: Our instability in this world should be normal.
Pray for God’s grace and peace to be fully realized in us.

Transformation is a supernatural process, not a natural one.
Transformation is the result of being WITH Jesus.
Transformation brings about something greater.

Transformation (almost always) takes time.
