Living Hope

I've been thinking about today, as I watch the Cowboys and the Jets... (there are 2 minutes left in the game!)

We've watched multiple stories about 9/11. News stories on the wildfires. And of course, we've watched the weather forecast.

I keep thinking about 1 Peter 1:3

Praise to God for a Living Hope

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

Hope.

Living Hope.

We are born again into a living hope.

A living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

What springs from the living hope............faith and love!!!

Colossians 1:5 says that

faith and love [...] spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven [...] about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel.

So the hope stored up for you and me in heaven is our Source for faith and love.

Living Hope in Heaven, the Source of faith and love.

Sounds just like our Lord Jesus to me.

Together in Hope,

Joe
