1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
1:6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
Salvation. What is that, exactly? Salvation is God's gift to us through Christ. When Christ died at Calvary's cross and rose again on the third day, we were blessed with salvation- the forgiveness of our sins, no matter how terrible they may be.
Thanks to Christ, we don't have to sacrifice animals to God for forgiveness, or anything like that. (Thank goodness, because I absolutely love animals) Instead of doing those things, we can come to Christ! Through him, we can get to God.
(John 6:44, No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.) Through God, we gain forgiveness and a God-driven life. God bless, and be sure to rejoice in your salvation!
