Bible Reading: 1 Peter 1:1-4
Tuesday, June 18, 2013
When I watch the birth of puppies or kittens, I know I have seen God’s work. But when I saw my grandson being born, I knew I had seen a real miracle. It is the same when someone receives new life through Jesus.
Sometimes we wish for something. But wishing does not last for very long. Through faith in God, we can have true hope. This hope is alive and lasts forever. Verse 3 of our Bible Reading says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God has great mercy, and because of his mercy he gave us new life. This new life brings us a living hope through Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death.”
This living hope means that if we follow and obey God, we will also be raised to live forever with Him. God wants us to trust Him and share our hope with other people.
Show someone today how they can have a new life and a living hope through Jesus. — PD
“Now we wait to receive the blessings God has for his children. These blessings are kept for you in heaven. They cannot be ruined or be destroyed or lose their beauty.” 1 Peter 1:4
PRAYER: God, we worship You and thank You for giving us a living hope through Jesus. In His name. Amen.
