He was destined before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of the ages for your sake.
Through him you have come to trust in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are set on God.
Now that you have purified your souls by your obedience to the truth so that you have genuine mutual love, love one another deeply from the heart.

For "All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls,
but the word of the Lord endures forever." That word is the good news that was announced to you.
