Encouragement for the saint

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

(1Pe 1:3-5 KJV)

 

2 cents:

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ: one God in three persons and Jesus is more than a good guy, a prophet, or some teacher – He is the Son of God the Father and He is Lord

 

which according to his abundant mercy: abundant overflowing mercy He has to those who come to Him

 

hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead: those that come to Him believe His Son died, was buried and rose again. Those that believe Him and trust Him he has begotten us – birthed – born again – a new creature that has a hope of glory, a hope of eternal life and not just thinking about Heaven but hope here on this earth. A life not of defeat but of victory

 

To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,: we being sons and daughters of God in Christ Jesus are adopted into the family of God. And as family we have an inheritance that the elements of time can not touch, the characteristics of sin can not tarnish, dull or ruin.

 

reserved in heaven for you,: And it has your name on your stuff and mine has my name on my stuff and it is simply waiting for us to come and receive it – again it is in Heaven – so sin and the affects of sin can not touch it.

 

Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.: What great news – our salvation in kept by the power of God, not by what we do or not do, we can’t have it, lose it, regain it and so on, He the almighty God is the author and maintainer of salvation; that is assurance of our salvation and preservation of the saints – it completely rests on the power of God
