a living hope

A Living Hope – 1 Peter 1:3-9

The end result of faith is the salvation of my soul, the “me” that inhabits the shell I walk around in now.  I find it interesting that we are even now receiving the salvation of our souls.  It is not just something to look forward to at death, or at Jesus return.  But even now that goal is being accomplished.  The more I come to know God, experiencing his presence in my life; the more I experience the refining of my faith through the trials of this life; the more my soul is delivered from the bondage of this flesh and into the glory of his presence.  And that should fill me with a glorious and inexpressible joy.
