HOPE

Hope
By Brother Ricky Yarbrough

 

What are you putting your hope in. Is it in yourself, other people, government, money, or other things of this world. Well; I must tell you, if your hope is in anything besides God and His Son Jesus Christ, then your hope is going to equal up to nothing more then a temporary, false, and disappointing hope. Because the Bible says in:

2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

So one shouldn’t put their hope on things seen. Because it’s only a temporary hope, that will soon fade away and be no more. But things which are not seen: like our soul, God and His Son Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, and heaven —these things are eternal and faded not away. So don’t put your hope or trust in people, and things of this world, more then the true hope, that only comes by God’s grace and through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.

So my hope is, that all people would put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The One who can give them not just hope in this life, but knowing after this life of ours has ended here on this earth; We that are saved, will be going to a much better place called heaven. Because our true hope and faith was not in this world, but was in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for our sins, and was buried, and God rose Him up on the third day, according to the scriptures.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

Proverbs 14:32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.

Proverbs 10:28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.

2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace.

1 Peter 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.
