Resurrection Assurance!

“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, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you”
I Peter 1:3-4

Christian, I lovingly challenge you to read this verse over a few times slowly; allowing the Holy Spirit to sink its fabulous truths into your soul! As I read slowly through this verse I see the following: 1. All the blessing and praise go first to the Father and the Son for their great mercy to me (toward we Christians)! 2. Why? Because through the Spirit of the living Christ, the Father has caused us to be “born again” (“born from above”-see John Three) to a living hope through His son’s resurrection from the dead! 3. In-order-for us to, what? In-order-for us to obtain an inheritance! And what kind of inheritance? An inheritance that is: imperishable (immortal), undefiled (unstained by evil-See Revelation 21:27), …will not fade away (unimpaired by time), reserved in heaven for you”

For who, Christian? Yes! For you! May the Word of God bring the hope and security of your eternity, which in turn, will bring you confidence and joy in your relationship with the eternal God, this glorious day! Pastor Louie
