The Hope of Glory

We have a great & glorious hope ‘In Christ’ that anchors us in our faith (Hebrews 6:19).
It is a hope that we are to stay strong & steadfast in.
Through faith we persevere & it is important we keep pressing in & pressing on.
It is a hope that must endure to the end. This will be our focus for today.


but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end. Hebrews 3:6

And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, Hebrews 6:11


The hope of glory we have ’In Christ’ is past, present & future.
We therefore need to keep tight hold of it & endure in it as we lay hold of our divine destiny.
We are to stay strong & steadfast until the end of all things when Jesus returns.
We can endure & diligently hold firm because of our confident assurance of God’s faithfulness.
We can be confident that the Lord will fulfil & deliver on all His promises.
That is our confident, assured, unwavering, unswerving, enduring hope. Hallelujah!!

The hope of glory we have ’In Christ’ is an enduring unchanging hope.
No matter what the circumstances of our lives we have hope.
There is always hope for it has a future destination & realisation.
Our revealing as the glorious Sons of God in His perfect New Creation (Romans 8:19).
Creation endures in hope & so must we. He who endures to the end will be saved (Matthew 10:22, 24:13).

The Lord has plans, & a sure purpose, to provide us with a glorious hope & a fabulous future.
A truly glorious future in perfect fellowship with Him. That is why Christ died for us.
That is the hope that keeps us enduring, no matter what we have to face or navigate through in live.
Our great hope sustains us & Jesus the hope of glory in our hearts strengthens us. So good.
Keep pressing on & pushing in deeper. Keep enduring in hope.

For Reflection

  • How confident am I of God’s plans & purposes for me?
  • In what ways am I diligently persevering & enduring in my hope & faith?
  • Meditate upon how we are exhorted to endure to the end in confident assured hope.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father, God of hope,
Thank you for the great & glorious hope of the Gospel,
That ‘In Christ’ I have an everlasting eternal place, & home, with You.
Jesus thank you that You secured my divine eternal destiny as a Son of God,
Through Your sacrificial death & powerful resurrection.
Holy Spirit keep me confident & assured in my faith & hope,
Steadfastly & diligently persevering & enduring the various trials & troubles of this live,
Keep me confident in & assured of the Lord’s plans & purposes for my life.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
