Our hope is a living, breathing hope in Christ Jesus, who died on the cross, on the third day rose from the dead, and now sits at the right hand of the Father. We are free by grace to live a real life, reconciled to God as sons and daughters.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Peter 1:3-5)
We should not fear death, for death no longer has dominion over us. God has redeemed us with a price. Our lives are His and the penalty of sin does not bind us, but we live a new life in Jesus.
Blessed be God the Father and His Son Jesus. Blessed be His name. Blessed be His purpose. Blessed be His reign upon the earth as it is in Heaven. Blessed be His church and blessed be the hope we have that one day we will rise to life everlasting.
How great is our God to have given us His life through the Holy Spirit. How wonderful He truly is to have given us our living hope through Christ Jesus.
