Today in God’s Word
Numbers 23; Psalms 64-65; Isaiah 13; 1 Peter 1
God has seen to it (1 Pet 1:3) that we, those who believe upon Jesus, came into new birth according to the plan and working of the triune God (1 Pet 1:2).
“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,” (1 Peter 1:3, ESV)
We have a living hope. Our savior lives…and he lives to make intercession for us (Heb 7:25; Rom 8:34) as he did for Peter (Luke 22:31-32). So too our faith will be sustained by the power of God (1 Pet 1:5) and to the praise of his glorious grace (1 Pet 1:7; Eph 1:4-6). Our hope lives. We have been reconciled to God by his death but much more are we saved by his life (Rom 5:10)!
May we walk in the knowledge of the living hope that we have in a risen savior!
Soli Deo Gloria!
