3 – Perfect Completion

1 Peter 1:3-5 (NKJV) – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, according to His abundant mercy, has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4  to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,  five who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time.

What great expectations! We’ll all be in our prime for eternity. Our bodies will be transformed from mortal to immortal bodies. At the speed of light, we can go from one place in Heaven to another location in Heaven. We will even be able to walk through walls because Jesus did, and we will be like Him.

Declaration: God loves me, and no one can take me out of His hands. My destiny is heaven, and I will live with those expectations promised by my loving God. Hallelujah!


My brothers and sisters, let me encourage you: we have the bread of life! Jesus is the great I am. In Him is everything we need on earth and in heaven. Jesus is the ultimate act of love from God because He sent Him to die for our sins. God didn’t have to do that, and Jesus could have said no to God.

Praise the Lord that both did what They did for us! We should always live with great expectations because of God’s promise. God’s Agape Love is a love that loves without changing. It is a self-giving love that gives without demanding or expecting repayment.

Love is so great that it can be given to the unlovable or unappealing. It is love that loves even when it is rejected. Agape love lives and loves because it wants to; it does not demand or expect repayment from the love given. It gives because it loves; it does not love to receive. That is how God and Jesus love us. Because they love us as they do with their Agape Love, we can be confident living a life with great expectations.
