September 23, 2016 – I Peter 1:3-4

i-peter1-3-4All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation,and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. I Peter 1:3-4There is no end of praise for our Lord God.  Everything beautiful in this life comes from Him, our Father in Heaven. This most powerful I AM created the breathtaking scenes constantly bringing hints of his glorious beauty… and incredulously raised His Son Jesus from the dead.  Our Father in Heaven chose us before He created the world and gives us work to do.  God is Love, and He brings love into the hearts of each of us.God hears our prayers and watches over us.  He has given us a way to respond to His Son Jesus and accept Him as our Lord and Savior.  He has promised us an inheritance in Heaven that He keeps for us until Jesus comes again.  It is an inheritance that cannot decay or change – eternity of love.Our response is everything, so we prepare our minds for action, we exercise self-control.  And we hope!!!!  We have hope in the graciousness of our Lord God who gives us salvation through Jesus Christ.  Jesus is coming.  Love, Live, Serve, and Trust with constant Praise to our Lord God each moment until our last breath.

 So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. I Peter 1:13
