Hope and Promise

Some have described the apostle Peter as the apostle of hope. He wrote, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an incorruptible and undefiled inheritance that doesn’t fade away, reserved in Heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:3-4 WEB). Peter acknowledges God as the source of all blessings and salvation. The hope of eternal life, the forgiveness of sins; all of the Christian's hope springs from God's abundant mercy.
