What is Hope?

Have you ever really thought of what you have hope in? Well, lets examine this word a little. Hope--The desire for something which a person believes can be obtained or expects he will get. Also, a person or thing that gives promise for future action. To have hope or desire. These meanings are from the regular dictionary.

My Christian dictionary says this--Trustful expectation particularly with reference to the future fulfilliment of God's promises. Biblical hope is the anticipation of a favorable outcome under God's guidance. More specifically hope is the confidence that what God has done for us in the past guarantees our participation in what God will do in the future.

Now, let me ask you, what is your hope in? Is it in yourself, money, family, things or in causes like saving the planet. Sometimes we get so caught up in our things like finding a husband, making alot of money families and sometimes in causes-we do need to think of these things but they should not be what we put our hope in.

I hope I'll live forever, there is no way for that to happen unless we have our hope in Jesus Christ. He is the answer for all our hopes. And if we know Him as our Lord and Savior, we will live with Him in heaven forever praising Him forever for what He did on the cross.

When I was diagnoised with colon cancer several years back, I was so frighten beause I was scared but My God gave me hope through His love and grace. And I also had the hope if I died I knew where I would spend eternity. Hope is a word we use all the time but I would like to ask you, what is your hope in. My prayer is that you will find Jesus so you will be able to participate in what God will do in the future for all believers. But one real good thing is that while your here on this side of heaven He will be your Savior and your best friend. He is an awesome God who takes care of you and He knows the hair that is numbered on your head. Can you imagine that. I sure hope that I have touched someones heart and you will think of where your Hope is? If you have any question about Salvation, please email me. God is good all the time.
