“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,” I Peter 1:3-4 NKJV.
Through the resurrection of Christ, our hope and new found life were resurrected in and with Christ. A new birth of sorts with a new clean slate to rewrite our lives but this time in accordance to His teachings and voice. It’s one thing to live life, it’s a completely different thing to live life in Christ because it is in and through Him that we are brought closer to God. It is through Christ that we are able to have daily communion and communication with the Father in Heaven. Through Christ, we inherit those things which are pure, incorruptible and everlasting. The fruits of the spirit as found in Galatians 5 and best of all we inherent life eternal and a place in the book of life. All these things we did not deserve, but through our hope reborn, we can rest assured knowing fully that our inheritance awaits us on that special day.
Thank you Lord for Your goodness and mercy that renews me each and everyday with a living hope of a life predestined. Help me to live in a manner that is worthy of Your Name and glory. Amen
