1 Peter 1:3 -- On Lively Hope

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,"
1 Peter 1:3

I love the idea of a "lively hope."  When we try to live without God, life can get pretty bad.  We slog through and wonder why everything seems to go wrong all the time.  But God allows us to let that old, hopeless self die, and to be reborn through him... unto a lively hope, because we know that because Christ was resurrected, we can be too.  This life isn't even close to the end, and there is no reason to fear what this life can do to us, because we know that God has something better waiting.

Today, let's try to capture that lively hope in our lives, and not let life bog us down.  Let's give thanks to God and focus on the good and making things better.  Let's strive for the good, and no matter how bad things get, let's rise above it.  We can do anything with God's help.
