Day 26 – What’s your Triple D?

1 Peter 1:3-9 (ESV)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Love that first verse, “Born again to a living hope”. The Resurrection provided for the believer a “living hope”. Hope that is tangible and very, very real. Not one that is placed upon a man, but upon our risen Savior, Jesus Christ. In Him, is found all the power needed to live out our faith with meaning. What is the deep down desire of your heart, your triple D? Well, The Resurrected Life reaches for it and walks in it, because we trust in our Savior who paved the way for us. This is why biblical hope is defined as being active/alive/living… for it actively and confidently expects. This my friends is “living hope”…so confidently activate it and trust God for expected outcomes.
