Living Hope

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you... 1 Peter 1:3,4

Born again to a living hope - I don't want this amazing theme to become commonplace in my life - I pray that God will give me an ever-increasing amazement for His gracious gift of salvation through Jesus!

Are you rejoicing over your salvation today?

"Are you rejoicing over your salvation today?"
Every time I think of who I was and what Christ did for me I rejoice over my salvation!
What a wonderful God we have that he should bless us so richly us being so undeserving of his blessings!

Hope you have a wonderful day Steph!

Hi Stephanie!

I am rejoicing, not only at what He removed but at what was offered in it's place. I think of eternity with our Most High God and I have to stand in AWE of the priveledge. This life seems like such a long time while were here but to truely hold it up against the time span of eternity and get the proper perspective is amazing.

For a little while we will have trials, but for All of Eternity will will have Love, Happiness, Joy, Peace, and the very FACE of our Beautiful Savior to gaze upon. Oh how I do look forward to eternity.
