THE HOPE OF OUR CALLING

Eph 1:18
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints... [KJV]

A lot has been said and written about faith and love, but not as much about Hope. We all understand that if a person loses his faith, he has lost his spiritual life. And we also understand that if a person does not have love, it is a sign that he does not have faith in the first place because faith in God would always produce love. Out of the three dominant Christian attributes (faith, hope and love) mentioned in 1 Cor 13:13, hope is the least talked about.

It is because of hope that we continue to have faith. One of the most important things God gives to us is hope. He does this by giving us the Holy Spirit who guarantees our inheritance. The Holy Spirit also causes us to experience a foretaste of the things to come.

The sad reality today is that many Christians have managed to survive eliminating the hope of our calling from their minds. They do not really look forward to the resurrection of the dead because they have been tricked to focus on this present life and not in the kingdom. They forget that the best this world has to offer is lower than the least thing we get when our bodies have been redeemed into the likeness of Christ.

Go into today remembering the hope of your calling into God’s kingdom. God is making sons in the image of Christ. This God’s grand design will be fully actualized when in the resurrection, we are changed to become exactly as Christ is. See 1 John 3:2.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you never lose your hope in Him.

-Pas SD Abraham
