MAY 6

Biblical Hope, a Firm Certainty 

"For Thou art my hope, O Lord God: Thou art my trust from my youth." Psalm 71:5

What does the word "hope" mean in the Bible?  It doesn't mean "maybe." We may use it that way in Modern English, but that's not what the word "hope" means in the Bible.

"Hope" means certainty, but not just any certainty. It is rock-ribbed assurance with anticipation based on the Word of God.

When I was a little boy, my dad would take us out for a ride on Sunday afternoon. The kids would be in the back seat getting into squabbles. If things got too heated, my dad would turn around and say, "When you boys get home, I'm going to whip you." With my dad, I knew this was a rock-ribbed truth!

Our hope, however, is glad anticipation!

Share the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ with someone today. Maybe there's someone at the hospital who needs a word of hope. Maybe it's a member of your family!
