A Living Hope

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to His great mercy, He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,G2128G2316G2532G3962G2257G2962G2424G5547G3588G2596G846G4183G1656G313G2248G313G1519G2198G1680G1223G386G2424G5547G1537G3498 4and into an inheritance that is imperishable, uncorrupted, and unfading, kept in heaven for you,G1519G2817G862G2532G283G2532G263G5083G1722G3772G1519G5209 5who are being protected by God's power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.G3588G5432G1722G1411G2316G1223G4102G1519G4991G2092G601G1722G2078G2540 6You rejoice in this, though now for a short time you have had to be distressed by various trialsG1722G3739G21G737G3641G1487G1163G2076G3076G1722G4164G3986 7so that the genuineness of your faith— more valuable than gold, which perishes though refined by fire— may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.G2443G1383G5216G4102G4183G5093G5553G622G1223G1161G1381G4442G2147G1519G1868G2532G5092G2532G1391G1722G602G2424G5547 8You love Him, though you have not seen Him. And though not seeing Him now, you believe in Him and rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy,G3739G1492G3756G1492G1492G25G1519G3739G737G3708G3361G1161G4100G21G5479G412G2532G1392 9because you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.G2865G5056G5216G4102G4991G5590 10Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that would come to you searched and carefully investigated.G4012G3739G4991G4396G1567G2532G1830G3588G4395G4012G5485G1519G5209 11They inquired into what time or what circumstances the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating when He testified in advance to the messianic sufferings and the glories that would follow.G2045G1519G5101G2228G4169G2540G4151G5547G3588G1722G846G1213G4303G3804G1519G5547G2532G1391G3326G5023 12It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you concerning things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Angels desire to look into these things.G3739G601G3754G3756G1438G1161G2254G1247G846G3739G312G3568G312G5213G1223G2097G5209G1722G40G4151G649G575G3772G3739G32G1937G3879G1519

A Call to Holy Living

13Therefore, get your minds ready for action, being self-disciplined, and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.G1352G328G3751G5216G1271G3525G1679G5049G1909G5485G5342G5213G1722G602G2424G5547 14As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignoranceG5613G5218G5043G3361G4964G4386G1939G1722G5216G52 15but, as the One who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct;G235G2596G2564G5209G40G2532G1096G846G40G1722G3956G391 16for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy.G1360G1125G1096G40G3754G1473G1510G40 17And if you address as Father the One who judges impartially based on each one's work, you are to conduct yourselves in reverence during this time of temporary residence.G2532G1487G1941G3962G3588G678G2919G2596G1538G2041G390G5550G5216G3940G1722G5401 18For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things, like silver or gold,G1492G3754G3084G3756G3084G5349G694G2228G5553G1537G5216G3152G391G3970 19but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish.G235G5093G129G5547G5613G286G299G2532G784 20He was destined before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of the times for youG3303G4267G4253G2602G2889G1161G5319G1909G2078G5550G1223G5209 21who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.G3588G1223G846G4100G1519G2316G1453G846G1453G1537G3498G2532G1325G846G1391G5620G5216G4102G2532G1680G1511G1519G2316 22By obedience to the truth, having purified yourselves for sincere love of the brothers, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,G48G5216G5590G1722G5218G225G1223G4151G1519G505G5360G25G240G1537G2513G2588G1619 23since you have been born again— not of perishable seed but of imperishable— through the living and enduring word of God.G313G3756G1537G5349G4701G235G862G1223G3056G2316G2198G2532G3306G1519G165 24For All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like a flower of the grass. The grass withers, and the flower drops off,G1360G3956G4561G5613G5528G2532G3956G1391G444G5613G438G5528G5528G3583G2532G438G846G1601 25but the word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the word that was preached as the gospel to you.G1161G4487G2962G3306G1519G165G1161G5124G2076G4487G3588G2097G1519G5209
