“To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the Hope of Glory” (Col 1:27)
I was very sick once and the doctor said to me: ‘Madam, please do not lose your hope’. I said: ‘Me? I cannot lose hope for Hope cannot lose me!’
For a child of God, hope is in their ‘system’. Hope is not a decoration, an attachment, or an achievement that can be lost or can fade away. Hope is a Living Person! Hope is Christ and Christ is in you. You cannot lose Christ; therefore, you cannot lose hope. This is a hope of Glory. The Glory describes God. In human words glory is the power and the beauty of God. As a true believer I know that my hope leads to Glory; my hope leads me to heaven. My hope shall bloom as glory; my hope shall mature as glory. Hallelujah!
That is why I declare that in Christ, my future is better than my past. By the grace of God, my hope will make me like Jesus, more powerful, more beautiful. I do not fear the passing of time. I am fruitful at my old age. Time is on my side. This morning I did my spiritual ‘pregnancy test’. It reads ‘positive’. I am pregnant with Hope! Out of my belly flow rivers of living water, to the thirsty needy souls. Glory! Therefore, I rejoice!
