Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:8-9 ESV)
Ви Його любите, не бачивши, і віруєте в Нього, хоч тепер не бачите, а вірувавши, радієте невимовною й славною радістю, бо досягаєте мети віри вашої спасіння душам. (1 Петра 1:8-9 Ukrainian)
O LORD my God ~ thank you for the hope that is in my heart today as I consider the brevity of my own life while comparing that with eternal life in your presence. According to your gracious will, give me a greater measure of the mind-boggling joy that is the reward for those who love your beloved Son and trust in him to forgive our sins and bring us into your presence. Give the leaders of this world and leaders of local churches wisdom to expand the peace that results from people surrendering their stubborn will to your good and perfect plan for all humanity. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
