Scripture: 1Peter 1:3-5
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, 5who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
Observation: Our hope is not in dead tradition, nor in prophets that have passed away, but rather our hope is alive forevermore, He is risen, He is Lord!
Application: We serve a Living Savior who has been resurrected by the Power of God The Father and who is actively involved in our lives.
Mom sent me this video Ressurection Painting in a forward this week and I think it goes along very well with the scripture from Peter this morning. Christ is Alive! He has conquered death and Hell and he holds the keys! Because he has overcome, WE can overcome. There is NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING greater than our Lord!
Prayer: Living Lord,
Thank you for overcoming the grave and being the catalyst for me into eternal life. I praise you for your power. Unto you be Glory forever!
