All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
It is by his great mercy that we have been born again,
because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead.
Now we live with great expectation and we have a priceless inheritance—
an inheritance that is kept in heaven, beyond the reach of change and decay.
When your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you
much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ
is revealed to the whole world.
1 Peter 1:3-4, 7 NLT
