1 Peter 1:3-9

1 Peter 1:3-9 
English Standard Version (ESV) 

  I could read this passage again and again and again.  You have a living hope that is imperishable and undefiled -- no matter what happens in this world or in this life, your hope cannot be taken from you.  We endure various trials now and again, but these are not the end of us.  No, we rejoice with inexpressable joy, for God is with us, and our souls have been saved.
  Friends, no matter what goes on outside your windows, or even within your walls, Christ has saved you and will guard that salvation for all of time.  Rest easy, lay down those burdens, and exhale -- God has handled the threats that stalk you in the middle of the night and whatever terror may loom.  Whatever shadows may come across your path, the light that shines in the darkness will never cease, and one day, that light will envelop us until that is all that is left.  Praise be to God!
