What gives you HOPE?

Last night I finished a study of the book of Hebrews with my small group Bible Study.   I struggled to understand many of the passages  yet so many nuggets of truth jumped out at me about the Hope we have in Christ.

Hebrews 6:19  “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”  Hebrews 10:23   Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess as he who has promised is faithful.”     Hebrews 11:1  “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”    Jesus is the reason for our HOPE.  His sacrifice was enough to cleanse us all for all time.  Hebrews 10:10 puts it this way, “And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”   We can depend upon Jesus because “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  Hebrews 13:8

hope in ChristSo the reason for my HOPE is Jesus.  He did it all for me and will never change his mind about loving and caring for me.  He saved me and I can place my HOPE in Him unswervingly as He who promised is faithful.   What about you?  Where is your Hope?  Is it someplace secure that will not be lost, stolen or forgotten?   Look to Jesus, He is the true unchanging place for the security of our hope.

 

Have a blessed day encouraged by HOPE in Jesus.
