He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

1 Peter 1:3

A living hope in a living Saviour! That’s the wonderful reality of our situation as Christians today. Like those in Thessaloniki, we have turned to God for the purpose of serving the living and true God and to wait for his Son from heaven (1 Thess.1:9-10) We wait in the assured hope of claiming our future inheritance. Not only is it promised to us individually, as being reserved in heaven for you, but it’s imperishable, undefined, and unfading. Furthermore, we can serve while we wait. Now that, as Peter exhorts his readers, really is something to rejoice about!
