Roll Of The Dice

Written By Eddie Duke

I Peter 1:3 –

“Because of his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 

When I was in my sin, apart from God, God pursued me because He loves me.  He was patient and refused to give up on me because He wanted to have a relationship with me and for me to know Him. 

When I put my trust in Him, He gave me a new life, a life of hope, not of empty promises or failed expectations, not a “roll of the dice” life  or a life happening by chance, but a reality, a certainty, of a future life forever with Him. 

My hope in life is real and certain because God has never forgotten or broken a promise.  This is all made possible because Jesus did something no one has done before or since. 

He died on a cross, was buried, and rose again. 

In doing so, he proved that He is able – able to forgive me, heal me, restore me, fix me, redeem me, and sustain me in a life of hope.  Every day is a fresh beginning in hope to face what lies ahead.  As I meditate on this verse that is the promise I see for me.  But it’s not just for me. 

This can be the narrative of every life.
