‘An anchor for the anchor-less’ (1 Peter 1:5-9)

In 1 Peter 1:5-9, Peter reminds his readers that though the inheritance of heaven will be kept for them and they will be kept by God for it, life on earth is not heaven. Our journey to heaven involves experiencing trials of many kinds that God has designed for the purifying of our faith and so that at then end of the journey, a greater measure of joy will await those who endure.
