1 Peter 1:9-12  "Enjoy Our Goal"

Salvation is the theme of all of the Bible.  The purpose of the Word of God is that people would see for themselves their need of Jesus Christ as Savior.  The Old testament prophets wrote of the coming Savior, God's Messiah.  The apostles preach that the Savior had come and Jesus was His name; that salvation was found in Christ alone.  Now Peter lets the Christians he is writing to know that even though they are facing suffering and persecution they can experience a joy in their salvation now as they serve Christ.  You and I can enjoy life now if our focus is Jesus and serving Him.  So the question is this, "Do you know Jesus as your own Lord and Savior?"  You can by trusting what He did your you by taking your place on the cross.
