Week 1 Day 4 Salvation unto hope
I always say one thing consistently and this is a key part of our Christian faith. Jesus is our hope, our hope cannot come from money, education, politics, not even religion. There is no hope that we can ever derive from man or the systems made by man; in this life and in eternity with God. Our salvation gives us an assurance of a better promise, a better covenant and a better future. Christianity has been portrayed for so long as a miracle drug that will solve all your problems and that is inaccurate. Jesus never promised us that life would be easier, he didn’t promise us that we would always be wealthy. His promise to us was that he would always be with us. Matthew 28:20. Salvation also offers us hope in tougher life seasons.
Scripture shares what we call “the hope of our salvation” which is a greater hope for a better salvation yet to come. This salvation will be manifest at the end of time when God fulfils his promise to us, as we are fully restored to him in eternity. Some scriptures call it blessed assurance. This blessed assurance guarantees your place in God, it creates full confidence in what Jesus did and it makes me fully confident that I am saved and I am a child of God. My sonship in Christ is concluded, sealed, guaranteed and assured.
1 Thessalonians 5:8
1 Corinthians 15:2, 54-58
- I place my focus on Jesus Christ as my hope, I repent from putting my faith in people, in myself, money or objects. I realise that my faith is in God; he is my source, my provider, my father, and my strength.
- I submit my hopes, my future, my dreams, my aspiration and my destiny to you God. I place it in your hands because my hope is in you.
- I am assured that my destiny is in the hands of God and my future is working out according to his plan and destiny for my life. I am called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
- I have no doubt in my mind that I am a child of God, I will be with him in heaven and I will be restored with Him in eternity.
