“For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that what is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” -Romans 8:24-25
This hope of the Gospel does an incredibly powerful work in us, so much so it’s beyond our words. Why? Because God’s hope has the ability to break and tear down all the worldly concepts and expectations.
Once a person reaches that point of seeing things in hope and through hope, then regardless of the momentary circumstance=the things not manifested yet; the person remains in hope and continues to do so. People around him/her might not comprehend at all and might even mock them because of the lack of understanding. Yet there are certain believers who carry such hope in their hearts for things that two or three generations need to pass so that everything they have hope for is fulfilled. Wow! This is a powerful insight that gives such a relief from any kind of pressure within or from outside.
According to the hope of God, anything is possible! And every person can be saved because Christ has justified humanity through the cross once and for all.
Christ didn’t just die for one’s sin, He rose from the dead to justify us, to make us righteous, so now we can boldly declare that we are His beauty on this earth and through His hope we can see His beauty in others around us.
This is confirmed again through His word in Romans 15:13…”May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you by the power of the Holy Spirit may abound in hope.”
Here’s the purpose of God working in us. To bring us to a place of abundant hope so we attract the things of heaven to be manifested here.
