1 Peter 1:3

I love this declaration of loving praise from Peter. Because it comes from a heart overflowing with gratitude for the immeasurable mercy of God. A mercy He gives to us, His children, every minute of every day. And from that great mercy springs forth the living hope we have in Christ’s resurrection, and our new birth as adopted children into the family of God. So in light of our new identities as coheirs with Christ, we are to align our lives with God’s Will and His kingdom values. That means trusting in His abundant love, timing, and direction as we navigate life’s challenges. And sharing the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ, and the transformative, living hope He alone offers. Oh how can we not join Peter in his worship and adoration of God. For in His abundant mercy, grace, and love, He spared nothing to give us eternal life. Not even His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
