Survival Skills for the Christian

01 28 I Peter Review In this message we close out looking at I Peter 1:15-16 as the “base camp” for the book.  In every life situation there is a call to holy living.  This is the challenge for the Christian until Christ returns – we are to be holy because He is holy.
