By Faith

today's reading.
1 Peter 1:3-9; Galatians 6:6-10    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...

think about it.
How do we get "living hope"(1 Peter 1:3)? What comes with that (1:4-5)? What do we gain when we're tested but hold onto our faith (1:6-9)? How does this living hope help you face difficulties each day? What should we be sowing or planting today (Galatians 6:6-8)? What are the results (6:8-10)? What are some ways you can exercise Galatians 6:9-10 today?

the blog.
As Christians we have a living hope. But so often life is crazy and I get caught up in all that's going on and don't necessarily give a lot of thought to my living hope. So what Peter conveyed in 1 Peter 1:3-9 was a good reminder for me today. He tells us about living hope--the hope we have now "to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled and unfading, kept in heaven for [us]. . ." as a result of Jesus' death and resurrection (vs. 3-4). Placing our faith in Jesus is how we receive living hope. And going forward, our faith is our core and foundation as we live for Christ.

So what does 1 Peter 1: 3-9 show you about the importance of faith and how it benefits us and works in our lives? What about how God values our faith? Tami W.

P.S. Take a minute and thank the Lord for the living hope you have today. Ask Him to help you continue to grow and draw on your faith.
