In yesterday's devotional, we celebrated our relationship with God in Whom we have life, safety, and a future forever with Him. Peter reminds us of this assurance when he says:
Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.
If we trust in God and find our security in Him, then there are some implications that our relationship with God has for us in today's verses:
Because we know, love, and live to praise God in our lives, we live to honor our Lord God in all the things we do in daily routines, and unwanted surprises.  We recognize that we are living sacrifices who refuse to be conformed to the world's destructive ways but live for God.  We have a purpose for our lives, and we choose to make them count for God and the Kingdom of God.  We are a people who have received the love, grace, and mercy of God and look forward to the full experience of our salvation with God.  Our relationship with God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit gives us this unshakeable hope. 
O, Father, we love You even though you have never seen You. Even though we do not see You with our eyes, now, we trust You and believe we will one day see You face to face. We rejoice in You and our relationship with You. Our joy is glorious and inexpressible because You exhaust our ability to praise You and Your majesty and grace. We serve You because You are God and worthy of our worship, devotion, and praise. However, we thank You because we know our reward for trusting You will be the salvation of our souls, and we will live forever in Your presence. Thank You! I praise You, in the name of Jesus, my Lord. Amen.
Together in Christ is a daily devotional that focuses on what Scripture teaches about godly living in relationships.
