6/4 Hope Persevering

Rom 8:24-25 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

What hope is this? It is the hope of salvation, the resurrection of your body and eternal life. This is the beginning of the source of your power to persevere. You must keep this hope constantly before in order that you might persevere.

Those who persevere will be saved. It is not for those who started in faith but didn’t finish. You are a saintly priest, one called by God. You will continue and struggle through each trial of faith. You will hold this hope before yourself daily. You are and will be saved, proved by your action and continuance.

Resolve to maintain this perspective. Draw others to this place and remind everyone daily of the hope in Jesus that none would fall short.
