The Kitchen Table Devotions
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time 1 Peter 1:3-5
The resurrection power to live is protected by the power of the resurrection. This life is guarded/shielded by the One who resurrected it through faith. The power of the resurrection now rules in and over the resurrected through faith. When we believe what He did and can believe in what He will do. That power has been loosed in our lives and into this life. That’s why we must not only believe in Jesus, but we must believe Jesus. The resurrection power that acted isn’t done acting. This is just the start. More is in the waiting for us to access it by faith. Don’t treat the beginning as the end, God’s not done showing us all He has for us.
