Do you wonder why the Lord allows suffering in the world and even in your own life ? Are you concerned about the times we live in and especially concerned about the coming times of trouble prophesied in Scripture ?

First Peter holds the answers. In this online study we will see God's purposes in allowing suffering and the places in which we will have to endure it. Above all we will see in practical terms how to go through suffering with great joy and come through refined and more like Christ.
