Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, that is, into an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It is reserved in heaven for every saint, who by God’s power is protected through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Praise the God of our salvation!
1 Pet 1.3-5
