|Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade-kept in heaven for you,|
The Olympic games bring us stories of great victories and stunning defeats. Young men and women from around the world sacrifice for years in order to compete on the world stage. Yet for all of that effort, most will go home disappointed. Their hopes are hinged upon a moment in time. For the person who trusts in Christ, there is a different hope; we have an inheritance that can't be taken in the heat of competition. There is a prize that has already been won through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. His victory is the ultimate gold medal that no one can match, yet everyone can benefit from!
