2019 – FRIDAY 18 OCTOBER
SAVED INTO HOPE
For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
THE FIRSTFRUITS OF SALVATION
The first fruits of salvation from the Lord are;
FAITH – for wholeness
HOPE – for better things
LOVE – for all mankind
HOPE FOR THINGS UNSEEN
The essence of hope is to believe for the better things promised by God – yet unseen – to become your reality.
IT IS NOT HOPE IF YOU CAN SEE IT
Hope is the breeding ground of faith.
Hope cannot see the promise yet – but by faith believes the promise and acts accordingly – looking unto Jesus – the author and finisher of our faith.
HOPE PRODUCES PERSEVERANCE
The gospel is the power of God UNTO…
It is a journey toward wholeness and victory.
UNTO the day of His appearing.
We keep at it – hoping and believing – in this imperfect world – for His grace to be sufficient – and His power to perform.
WITHOUT HOPE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE
When people lose hope – it is impossible to have faith.
When people lose faith it is impossible to please God.
When people lose faith it is impossible to love others.
HOPE MAKES NOT ASHAMED
