1 Peter 1:3-4: “3 Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to His great mercy, He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead 4 and into an inheritance that is imperishable,uncorrupted, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.”
When was the last time you received a gift from a friend or loved one “just because” …the kind that pleasantly surprises you because its simple purpose is to show appreciation for you who are as a person. There is so much joy that stirs up inside of you and it has the potential to brighten even the worst of days.
I think our heavenly Father deserves a million “just because” moments. He has given us so much. This passage in 1 Peter highlights the most amazing thing He has done for us, salvation through His Son, Jesus. Dwell on this passage today and give Him extra praises “just because” of who He is.
