Born Again to a Living Hope
Resurrection Sunday is about so much more than new barnyard creatures, though. 1 Peter 1:3-5 (ESV) tells us:….
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.
Praise God! Jesus is risen and we have the opportunity to follow him in that new life in eternity. It doesn’t get any more amazing than that. All we have to do is be born again. (Wait, what?)
