1 Peter is a letter for Christians in need of encouragement as we look to navigate the challenges of our troubled world. Peter offers us a vision of Jesus, our living hope, the one who has overcome death and lives in heaven awaiting our arrival. We are promised an inheritance with him that never perishes, fades of gets defiled. His is a true hope. An antidote to the hopelessness of our world.
In this series:
1 Peter 1:3–7 (Listen)
Born Again to a Living Hope
3 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, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
