“Living Hope” ( 1 Peter 1:3, WYC ) by Carley Evans

Likely you know already that God “begat us again into living hope” and that He accomplished this through “the again-rising of Jesus Christ from death.” Notice the focus of Peter’s words here – his words focus on the work of God the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ. The power displayed in the resurrection of Jesus from death is the same power displayed in our birth into living hope.

Read it, ponder it, love the wondrous Word of God!

“Blessed be God, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which by his great mercy [which after his great mercy] begat us again into living hope, by the again-rising of Jesus Christ from death [by the again-rising of Jesus Christ from dead],”

    Reblogged this on Prydain and commented:
    Carley Evans reminds us of a most profound truth: the same Power who raised Jesus from the dead is that Power that raises us to new life in Christ. Thanks to Carley for reminding us of this.
