What is Living – Matters!

As I begin a study of 1 Peter, I have made note of things that are living. These are living truths that won’t change but will always be a part of the song of salvation.

Consider this –
We have a LIVING HOPE through Christ’s resurrection (life restored)
We have a LIVING INHERITANCE with no corruption or strings attached
We have a LIVING INHERITANCE that can not be used up as it does NOT FADE away! Yes, I mention it twice, double emphasis for double blessing!
We have a LIVING FAITH that is tested – by practice and experience (Rom 2:7 patient continuance) to praise, honor and glory.
We have a LIVING SALVATION – being born again (resurrection)
We have a LIVING SAVIOR – the red line of redemption spreads from Genesis to Revelation, preached by the Holy Spirit through the prophets, to all mankind!
We have the LIVING WORD OF GOD that lives and abides forever!

It can’t get any better! Have you entered into the place of the living?

Living He loved me, dying He saved me;
Buried He carried my sins far away.
Rising He justified, freely forever!
Someday He’s coming, Oh glorious day!

…because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. These things command and teach (1Timothy 4:10-11).

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit (1Pet 3:18).
