My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the FATHER, JESUS CHRIST the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 Peter 1:3-5
3 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, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by GOD’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. #Bible http://mydailybible.org/dv/esv/2015-01-24.htm

CHRISTians who were struggling against false teachers and persecution. In spite of those dire circumstances, Peter begins his letter by recounting the blessings of GOD and the living hope possessed through the resurrection of JESUS. His purpose was to remind his readers that the glory of their true status before GOD was hidden by their present circumstances, but it was nonetheless real and true.Although we often feel burdened and worn down, the reality is that we are already living an eternal life in fellowship with our heavenly FATHER. JESUS defeated death in order that we might never die and never fear.
