A New Hope
' Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. '

3. Do You see yourself redeemed or needing redemption?
4. Do you have a hard time seeing and believing in the rewards and blessings of a Godly life?
