1 Peter 1:3
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,…
Because of what Jesus did in restoring our relationship with God we now have a living hope, for our hope is in Him. Hope means a confident expectation of good. As a believer we should be living in hope every day. We do so by looking to hope past. The children of Israel had a promise given to them by God of good to come. A Messiah would come and deliver them from their sin. That expectation of God came to pass just as God had said. We can now live in hope present looking at all that scripture teaches us that Christ has fulfilled for us and therefore we can expect good to come to pass based on all that He has done. We can also live in hope to come as we know Jesus will return for His church and we will ever be with the Lord. All who are born again are no longer without hope for our God is that hope. Don’t live a hopeless life. Look to His Word and expect what He has said to come to pass in your life, then by Faith lay hold of that promise for God is good to all who call upon Him.
