Our Pastor started a series of messages in 1 Peter. Today his message was about how as humans we would like the assurance of health, finances, happiness, for life to be good no problems. We base our happiness on these things so often. In this new year we have no idea what may happen in our life. But if we are a born again believer we have the hope of God and Heaven no matter what may happen to us. When trials come we need to rejoice in God, not get angry at God or question his love for us, but praise him and remember that we are a child of God, nothing can separate us from God.
I may not know what all is going to happen in this new year, but I have a living hope in God. No matter what we face in life if we have accepted Christ as our personal Savior we have a heavenly inheritance, because of the Resurrection of Christ, which is incorruptible, undefiled, and fadeth not away.
What a blessing to know that no one can take this inheritance away from us. 1Peter 1:5 says, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (King James)
Enjoy the rest of this Lords Day!
