Music for January 20
Music Devotion by Scott Maxwell
1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. . .
What a rich sentence! But just think a moment on what Peter says about our hope. Our hope springs from our new birth which God mercifully caused. And this hope is ours THROUGH the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Our hope doesn’t come to us through anything this world has to offer. It comes only through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. The world does not have the power, the wisdom, or the resources to offer this kind of hope. The resurrection from the dead is simply not a worldly idea or concern. All the world can do is distract its worldly ones from thinking about death.
How great that God secured our hope for us through something that only He is powerful, wise and resourced to do. Prepare your heart to worship this great God and Savior this Sunday when we gather together in His name.
