The Hope of the Christian
Main Text: 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.
Psalm 31:24 – Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.
When we hope on something it means we do not believe on anything else other that particular thing. As Christian our hope is in Christ Jesus for the bible says in Colossians 1:27 “to whom Gods would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”.
Hope brings expectancy and expectancy produces miracle, our hope today as
Christians is that Christ died and rose again for our Justification, Titus 3:7 “says that being justified by his grace we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life”. Through the death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ we have been redeemed and we now have hope of eternal life. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory our lord Jesus Christ.
We must always remind ourselves that our end is not here, there is a home for the righteous and a reward for the faithful. We should not behave like those whose end is of the earth. We are destined for Heaven.
OUR HOPE IS BUILT IN NO OTHER THAN JESUS CHRIST
