From 1 Peter 1:8-9 (NLT)
“You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.”
I was just reading 1 Peter tonight and that verse really stuck out. Particularly the “you love Him even though you have never seen Him.” It reminds me of what Jesus said to Thomas in John 20:29… that we who believe without having seen Jesus are “blessed.” And “reward for trusting” is “the salvation of your souls.” What a great thing to remember as we enter the year 2012! We are blessed… so very blessed.
So… on that note, have a Blessed New Year!
