1 Peter 1:3-7
"In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."
This passage describes what we talked about on Sunday as "Redemptive Time". Peter calls our current state a "living hope" where, even though we experience many trials, our persistence in pursuit of our hope results in praise, glory and honor from God.
Do you view your life day to day as a living hope? Why or why not? If not, how would you sum up your view of your life and what makes that so?
Prayer: Pray that God tunes your view of life to a healthy and accurate view of your reality.
