Praise God For A Living Hope
"Praise 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,
and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade-
kept in heaven for you who through faith are shielded by God's
power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed
in the last time.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may
have to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
These have come so that your faith- of greater worth than gold,
which perishes even though refined by fire- may be proved to be
genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus
Christ is revealed."
1Peter 1: 3-7
We maybe carrying such heavy budens right now but they will last only for a little while. We are just being tested by God so we will be worthy of the great glory that He will reveal to us when He returns to this world.
