1 Peter 1:3-7 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy has caused us to be born again to lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of…
