1 Peter 1:3-9

A Living Hope

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to His great mercy, He has given us a new birtha into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 and into an inheritance that is imperishable, uncorrupted, and unfading, kept in heaven for you,
5 who are being protected by God's power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 You rejoice in this,b though now for a short time you have had to be distressed by various trials
7 so that the genuineness of your faithc-more valuable than gold, which perishes though refined by fired-may result ine praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
8 You love Him, though you have not seen Him. And though not seeing Him now, you believe in Himf and rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy,
9 because you are receiving the goal of yourg faith, the salvation of your souls.h
