“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter 1:3).

Peter sees in the resurrection a confirmation of the efficacy and efficiency of the cross in the accomplishment of God’s redemptive purposes. We cannot place emphasis on one at the expense of the other; both are necessary to understand the “working out” of God’s saving mercies. When carrying the cross of our burdens, the resurrection affirms there is more of the story to be written.
