The Power of Hope
Hope Never Dies
1 Peter 1:1-5

From Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ. To God’s people who are scattered like foreigners in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. God the Father decided to choose you as his people, and his Spirit has made you holy‚ĶI pray that God will be kind to you and will keep on giving you peace!
1 Peter 1:1-2 (CEV)

I. We have hope for today: so give thanks

Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Because of his great mercy he gave us new life by raising Jesus Christ from death. This fills us with living hope.
1 Peter 1:3 (GNT)

II. We have hope for tomorrow: so live with expectation

and so we look forward to possessing the rich blessings that God keeps for his people. He keeps them for you in heaven, where they cannot decay or spoil or fade away. They are for you, who through faith are kept safe by God’s power for the salvation which is ready to be revealed at the end of time.
1 Peter 1:3-5 (GNT)
