Week 47 Bible Reading: 1 Peter 1:3–5

We're Safe

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us ... an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you. - 1 Peter 1:3–4

You’ve heard of Fort Knox, Kentucky, right?

There’s a well-protected building there that stores 5,000 tons of gold bullion and other precious items. But it’s not like Costco; they are not giving out free samples!

Fort Knox is one of the safest places on Earth. The building has a twenty-two-ton door and many layers of physical security: including unmarked Black Hawk helicopters.

There’s another place that’s safer, and it’s filled with something more precious than gold: Heaven holds your gift of eternal life. Peter encouraged believers in Christ to praise God because we have “a living hope”—a confident expectation that grows and gains strength the more we learn about Jesus (1 Peter 1:3).

Our hope is based on the fact that Jesus was raised from the dead on what we call Easter. His gift of eternal life will always be there for us. God has been keeping it safe and will continue to do so forever. No matter what problems you run into, remember this: If you have trusted Jesus as Savior, you’re safe forever.

Even safer than the gold at Fort Knox, our salvation is protected by God, and you are secure.

Fun Fact

When crews built Fort Knox, they used 4,200 cubic yards of concrete and 16,000 cubic feet of granite.

Just You and God

Thanks, Jesus, for keeping me safe through salvation.
