Praise to God for a Living Hope

3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,G2128G2316G2532G3962G2257G2962G2424G5547G3588G2596G846G4183G1656G313G2248G313G1519G2198G1680G1223G386G2424G5547G1537G3498 4and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you,G1519G2817G862G2532G283G2532G263G5083G1722G3772G1519G5209 5who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.G3588G5432G1722G1411G2316G1223G4102G1519G4991G2092G601G1722G2078G2540 6In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.G1722G3739G21G737G3641G1487G1163G2076G3076G1722G4164G3986 7These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.G2443G1383G5216G4102G4183G5093G5553G622G1223G1161G1381G4442G2147G1519G1868G2532G5092G2532G1391G1722G602G2424G5547 8Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,G3739G1492G3756G1492G1492G25G1519G3739G737G3708G3361G1161G4100G21G5479G412G2532G1392 9for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.G2865G5056G5216G4102G4991G5590 10Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care,G4012G3739G4991G4396G1567G2532G1830G3588G4395G4012G5485G1519G5209 11trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.G2045G1519G5101G2228G4169G2540G4151G5547G3588G1722G846G1213G4303G3804G1519G5547G2532G1391G3326G5023 12It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.G3739G601G3754G3756G1438G1161G2254G1247G846G3739G312G3568G312G5213G1223G2097G5209G1722G40G4151G649G575G3772G3739G32G1937G3879G1519

Be Holy

13Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.G1352G328G3751G5216G1271G3525G1679G5049G1909G5485G5342G5213G1722G602G2424G5547 14As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.G5613G5218G5043G3361G4964G4386G1939G1722G5216G52 15But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;G235G2596G2564G5209G40G2532G1096G846G40G1722G3956G391 16for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."G1360G1125G1096G40G3754G1473G1510G40 17Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.G2532G1487G1941G3962G3588G678G2919G2596G1538G2041G390G5550G5216G3940G1722G5401 18For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers,G1492G3754G3084G3756G3084G5349G694G2228G5553G1537G5216G3152G391G3970 19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.G235G5093G129G5547G5613G286G299G2532G784 20He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.G3303G4267G4253G2602G2889G1161G5319G1909G2078G5550G1223G5209 21Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.G3588G1223G846G4100G1519G2316G1453G846G1453G1537G3498G2532G1325G846G1391G5620G5216G4102G2532G1680G1511G1519G2316 22Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.G48G5216G5590G1722G5218G225G1223G4151G1519G505G5360G25G240G1537G2513G2588G1619 23For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.G313G3756G1537G5349G4701G235G862G1223G3056G2316G2198G2532G3306G1519G165 24For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall,G1360G3956G4561G5613G5528G2532G3956G1391G444G5613G438G5528G5528G3583G2532G438G846G1601 25but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you.G1161G4487G2962G3306G1519G165G1161G5124G2076G4487G3588G2097G1519G5209
