BESIEGED ON ALL SIDES, the early church faced external and internal threats. Followers of Christ could easily have been defeated or diverted. A distinct minority in a pagan society, they could have capitulated to their culture. But challenged by God through these writings and strengthened by the Holy Spirit, they stood fast, even unto death. We, too, live in a hostile environment, a God-denying culture where many would enjoy eliminating all traces of the Christian faith. Crossing the centuries, these short and profound letters have been written for us. They encourage us to live godly lives, to stand firm in our faith, and to be ready for Christ’s return.
