1 Peter 1:3-5 Living Hope, Precious and Certain

1 Peter:1:3
You have a living hope; it has been raised up with Jesus.

1 Peter 1:4
You have a precious hope; it is a heavenly inheritance that’s waiting for you.

1 Peter 1:5
You have a certain hope; it is salvation, guaranteed.

John 10:27-30
Colossians 3:3

Romans 8:24-25

How should we be living differently now since we know we have salvation/an inheritance waiting for us?

1 Peter 1:1-2 Strangers In Danger

1 Peter 1:1 1Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who are [elect exiles of the Dispersion] in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

1 Peter 1:2 [according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,] [in the sanctification of the Spirit,] [for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood:] [May grace and peace be multiplied to you.]

Key Idea: Our instability in this world should be normal.

Pray for God’s grace and peace to be fully realized in us.
