As I studied 1 Peter 1:3-4 tonight, the timeless relevance of God’s Word overwhelmed my heart. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. To an inheritance incorruptable and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you.”
Jesus poured out His lifeblood on the cross giving me an overwhelming, merciful promise of hope. That hope is living life eternal in Christ and through Him as a result of his sacrifice. That hope became living and breathing for me and for you, the moment Jesus Christ was risen from the dead. You see, He poured out abundant mercy through His precious blood, when He died for me. Then, three days later, He was raised from the dead. It was at that moment that the hope of life everlasting, and the promise that God had fulfilled could never be corrupted. He says it is “incorruptable and undefiled and that does not fade away…”.
The mighty power of the shed blood of Jesus will never lose its charge or become unusable. No upgrade is required, and hope will always be eternal. Thank you Lord for the Cross.
