Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead… – 1 Peter 1:3
You were born once into this world; and if you choose Jesus, you will be “begotten…again” into the Kingdom of Heaven! The first birth wasn’t your choice; but the second birth is up to you. You didn’t get to choose how and when you were born! But you get to choose how and when you are born again.
No matter what kind of family or situation you were born into: when you receive Jesus, you are born again! You now have a living hope. There is no such thing as hopelessness in the Kingdom of God. You are no longer living for life here on earth; you are living for life with God in heaven! You will never be the same because you have been covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, who died to give you Resurrection life.
Hope lives. Choose hope! Receive Jesus as Lord, and be born again.
Father, I am making the decision today to be born again! I choose Jesus. I know my life will never be the same! And I thank You for that, in Jesus’ name.
