Have Faith and Be Encouraged!

I Peter 3-9  Amplified Bible

” Praised (honored, blessed) be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)! By His boundless mercy we have been born again to an ever-living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [born anew] into an inheritance which is beyond the reach of change and decay [imperishable], unsullied and unfading, reserved in heaven for you.  Who are guarded (garrisoned) by God’s power through your faith [till you fully inherit that final] salvation that is ready to be revealed for you in the last time.

“You should be exceedingly glad on this account, though now for a little while you may be distressed by trials and suffer temptations, so that the genuineness of your faith may be tested, your faith which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire. [This proving of your faith is intended] to redound to your praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ ( the Messiah, the Anointed One) is revealed.  

“Without having seen Him; though you do  not [even] now see Him, you believe in Him and exult and thrill with in expressible and glorious (triumphant, heavenly) joy. [At the same time] you receive the result (outcome, consummation) of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”  Amen

May God’s Blessings of Favor, Mercy and Grace abound to you!
