The greatest hope you can have
August 9, 2011
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Many years ago, a man was sentenced to death, but obtained a reprieve from the king by assuring him he would teach his majesty’s horse to fly within one year. The only condition was if he didn’t succeed, he would be put to death at the end of the year.
So as he was sitting with some other prisoners one day, one of them asked him, “How are you so sure you can teach his horse to fly?”
He replied, “I’m not. But within a year, the king may die, I may die, or the horse may die. And who knows? Maybe the horse will learn to fly!”
The Christian is the ultimate optimist. Whatever may be going on in your life, if you’re a believer in Jesus Christ, you have a hope! Hope is to the Christian what oxygen is to the body. You can live without health. You can even live without happiness. But you cannot live without hope.
The Word of God calls our hope a blessed hope. It’s a hope that brings constant joy to the believer. It is a very definite and specific hope that Christ is going to one day wipe every tear from our eyes when He comes back.
So as you live your life, remember that you can always look toward a better day when Christ will return. He is your greatest hope!
CHRIST’S RETURN IS THE GREATEST HOPE YOU CAN HAVE. SO LIVE YOUR LIFE EACH DAY IN EVERY SITUATION WITH FULL CONFIDENCE IN HIS COMING!

When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!
