Bible: 1 Pet 1:17-21
1:17 And if you address as Father the one who impartially judges according to each one’s work, live out the time of your temporary residence here 1 in reverence. 1:18 You know that from your empty way of life inherited from your ancestors you were ransomed – not by perishable things like silver or gold, 1:19 but by precious blood like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb, namely Christ. 1:20 He was foreknown 2 before the foundation of the world but 3 was manifested in these last times 4 for your sake. 1:21 Through him you now trust 5 in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
