With the persecution intensifying and many believers being deceived by false teachings about God’s Law and in danger of becoming apostate, Peter begins his letter reminding his readers of the divine provisions for a life of godliness. This opening serves as a natural progression from the end of his last letter, where Peter reminded believers that God’s mighty hand will perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish them (cf. 1 Peter 5:10). As such, God accomplishes these actions by granting believers faith, grace and peace, everything pertaining to life and godliness, and precious and magnificent promises.
