July 1 – A Lively Hope

Lively Hope
1 Peter 1.

Text: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3 nkjv

Learn and Apply: There are many things in life that can cause a person to lose hope; it could be a financial situation, a health situation, an economic challenge, or a global pandemic. These cares can drain the hope that is in us, causing it to die out. But we have hope – we have this assurance that the resurrection of Jesus Christ gives us reason to hope again. I quite like the way the KJV puts it, “lively hope”; It means that no matter what we go through in this life, we have a lively hope of a bright future with Jesus. We know that this is not all there is. We know for sure that we do not have hope only in this life, that there is more – a resurrection and eternal life in Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 15:19).

Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, let us not live as people who do not have hope. Let our light so shine in these dark and perilious times that men will see our good works and our bright countenance and glorify the Father in heaven, who has called us to this lively hope – and has prepared an inheritance for us, one that is undefiled, incorruptible, and does not fade away (1 Peter 1:4). Bless God.

May God revive the hope that is in us in Jesus name.

Is your hope in Christ dead? I pray a renewal right now in Jesus name!

Prayer: Thank you Jesus for birthing this lively hope in me. Help my conversation to be aligned with this lively hope that you birthed in me in Jesus name.
