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, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade. 1 Peter 1:3-4
1 Peter was originally written to exiles or people forced to move away from not only their homes but their country. Maybe you have not been forced to leave your home and country but I'm sure you can identify with some kind of loss. Most of us can say there has been a time where we have had to give up things we love or very precious things have been taken from us. Guess what? No matter what you have lost in Christ there is ALWAYS a living hope. Through his resurrection you have an inheritance that no one can ever steal from you. It never perishes, spoils, or fades. All the things of this world maybe stripped from you but no one can ever steal your eternal inheritance! Never lose hope!
