The Living Hope!
What is your hope?
Do you hope in yourself, in your strength and ability?
Do you hope in your wealth and possessions?
If you believe only in yourself and your achievements,
Your hope will last as long as you are healthy and strong.
Your hope will deplete as you grow older and weaker.
You will slowly fade away into hopelessness.
If your hope is in materialism
The things will explode in flames in the fiery trials,
And so will your hope.
If you hope only in God but not in the death
And resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ
Then your hope will perish in the grave.
A hope that is based only in this present life is doom
And you are the most wretched of all men.
The blood of Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection
Makes the difference to your hope.
There is hope beyond the grave!
So hope in it!
Beverley Wright (April 18, 2015)
If only in this life you have hope, you are doom!
Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up—if in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. (1 Corinthians 15:12-19)
