Day 13

Read 1 Peter 1:3-12

We may wish we could have walked with Jesus during his earthly ministry in order to boost our faith. Remember, the prophets had less to go on and still preached the good news by faith. We cannot yet see Jesus with our eyes, but the saving relationship we can have with him is no less real.

Reflection: How does reflecting on the living hope you have in Jesus bring joy into your life? How is it possible for that joy to remain even in the midst of various trials?

Prayer Point: Ask the Lord to grow your love for Christ, to deepen your faith in him, and to multiply the joy that he alone brings.

Families/Kids: Read The Jesus Storybook Bible: Operation “No More Tears!”

Reflection: Why do people need to be rescued? Who is the Rescuer that Isaiah was talking about?

Prayer Point: Thank God that we don’t have to be lost forever apart from Him, but that He has sent us a Rescuer!
