CHRIST the HORN of SALVATION (Lk 1:69): Dear Christian, rejoice today in the fullness of our provision as expressed in 1 Peter 1:3-6. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…”—we have a SHARED life, inextricably linked forever with the Godhead. “…who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again…”—we have a SAVED life, born from above by the energizing work of the Holy Spirit. “…to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…”—we have a SECURE life, guaranteed by Christ’s own resurrection. “To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you…”—we have a SUPPLIED LIFE, missing nothing in time and eternity. “…who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time”—we have a SUSTAINED LIFE, preserved by the Lord’s constant care. No wonder Peter adds: “In this you greatly rejoice…”—what a SATISFYING life we have!
