July 30 – Living Hope

Praise 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, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:3-5)

New birth into a living hope.

This is something no one else can offer … a living Savior.

Everything on earth dies … nothing remains alive.  Except Jesus Christ.  When He came back from death, He didn’t end up in heaven by dying again.  He was, is and shall always be alive.

It is He that offers us living hope. Because it comes through a living Savior, it can’t perish, spoil or fade.  Because it is stored for us in heaven, it can’t be damaged or stolen.

A living hope.  Take a moment to consider the depths of that and then say thank you.
