Even Though I Cannot See

1 Peter 1: 3-9

Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! 

God has given us a new birth because of his great mercy. We have been born into a new life that has a confidence which is alive because Jesus Christ has come back to life. 

 We have been born into a new life which has an inheritance that can’t be destroyed or corrupted and can’t fade away. That inheritance is kept in heaven for you, since you are guarded by God’s power through faith for a salvation that is ready to be revealed at the end of time.

You are extremely happy about these things, even though you have to suffer different kinds of trouble for a little while now

The purpose of these troubles is to test your faith as fire tests how genuine gold is. 

Your faith is more precious than gold, and by passing the test, it gives praise, glory, and honor to God. This will happen when Jesus Christ appears again.

Although you have never seen Christ, you love him. 

You don’t see him now, but you believe in him. 


You are extremely happy with joy and praise that can hardly be expressed in words as you obtain the salvation that is the goal of your faith.

I love this passage in scripture.

I need this passage in scripture.

Key words:

given us new birth
an inheritance that can't be destroyed
kept in heaven
guarded by God's power
extremely happy
suffer for a little while
test your faith
more precious than gold
extremely happy with joy
hardly be expressed in words
salvation is the goal

So much hate.  So much fear.  So much anger.


The suffering will not end and our beliefs will be challenged but this time on earth is temporary.  And while I weep for what is happening around me, I am holding hard and strong to what is waiting for me.  And for you.
