brief·ing (brēfiNG) noun – a meeting for giving information or instructions.

Most of us love briefings because they are usually short and to the point. It’s not a time for a lot of chit chat. Important information is shared, and then you’re done. It’s time to go get to work.

As parents we often give briefings to our kids before they head out the door. It’s dangerous out there and we want them to be safe. We want them to make good choices. So we figure another short reminder can’t hurt. Which is why we say things like: “Be careful” or “Don’t talk to strangers” or “Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.”

Today we complete our study through the book of 1 Peter. But not without a final briefing from Peter that could make the difference in whether we will win or lose the war we are in. You know that we are in a war, right? Danger is all around in this fallen world, and we need to be battle ready. Peter’s closing words will help us do that.
