We all need a little encouragement and some of my greatest encouragement comes from taking time daily to read and meditate on the Scriptures. I am loving this passage of Scripture and thought that it might be a blessing to some of you as well! It comes from 1 Peter 1:3-5
3.) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4.) to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in Heaven for you, 5.) who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
So Thankful! I am thankful for God’s blessing on my life and I want my life to be a blessing to Him. God has blessed me with His great gift of mercy and caused me to be born again to a living a hope that never dies! I do not deserve and I cannot earn a relationship with Him, but through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, I have been blessed with an everlasting relationship!
An Imperishable Inheritance! This relationship will allow me to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and that will not fade away. This inheritance is reserved for me in Heaven. I will not have to fight for it and I do not have to worry about anyone taking it away from me!
God’s Protection! I am protected by the power of God through the faith that He has provided. My salvation does so much more than get me out of Hell and into Heaven. My salvation moves me from death to life and grows me for service to the King! I want to be and I am ready whenever God decides to come, not because of what I have done, but because of what He has done for me!
Blessing God! We bless God when we make the choice to live in the power of our right relationship with Him!
