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)
What wondrous words! We have been saved because our Lord Jesus Christ has caused us to be born again through His resurrection.
Yesterday, the two of us were talking about our relationship with God. So many times we cry out to God for help, and this is right to do. He is our Refuge, our Deliverer, our Redeemer. All of these names refer to Him taking care of us. In our relationship with God, we even rely on Him for the very air we breathe.
It is important to praise Him for who He is. He is the Alpha and Omega, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. No one comes before Him. There is no one like Him, and He is to be given all glory, all honor and all praise.
Because of God’s grace, we have living hope in salvation through our faith as believers, and we can look forward to spending eternity with God.
Saving us is the greatest and most concrete demonstration of God's love, the definitive display of His grace throughout time and eternity. - David Jeremiah
