Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he gave us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, into an inheritance that is undying, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. Through faith you are being protected by God’s power for the salvation that is ready to be revealed at the end of time. (1 Peter 1:3-5 EHV)
Hymn 346:3-4 Death Is Dead, the True Life Liveth
He who rose from death all-glorious
Soon will gather to His side
Those who sleep in Him, victorious
By the blood His wounds supplied;
Flesh and spirit, through His merit,
Jesus, death’s Destroyer, make me
Day by day to die with Thee;
Thus, with Thee arising, take me
Thine through all the days to be–
Thine forever, faithless never–
This may prayer unceasingly.
Jesus, my Savior, thank You for giving me the inheritance of eternal life in heaven. Give me patience as I await Your return, and help me to share the joy of forgiveness and salvation in Your name. Amen.
