1 Peter 1:2-4
V 4 …born again to a living hope
I was stuck on that phrase “living hope”…I loved thinking of that as it applied to believers. The ESV says “believers have an unshakeable hope for the future…” Not to say that their will not be trials and persecutions; there certainly will be both. Not to say that our faiths will not be tested; it will be. Yet, in the end; we know without any doubt that our hope will be fulfilled. The ESV goes on to say “…for Christ’s resurrection is a pledge of their own future resurrection.” How wonderful to know that no matter what we face, we will in the end be triumphant.
