Nibble of Bread : Where is your Hope?

November 29, 2012

1 Thessalonians 4:17

17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

This verse was taken from a passage titled ‘The Hope of the Resurrection’. Hope is a very powerful, driving, motivating factor. All of us have hope in something, whether earthly or spiritual. For those of us who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, this verse describes one of the most hope driven events of our faith today.

We are known to be living in what is called the ‘End Times’. If you take a look at the world around you, things are not looking too good with human eyes. Violence is increasing, debt is increasing, belief in many different things are increasing, and disobedience among others, these things all are pointing towards the end (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

Whether you truly believe this or not, just take a look at what your hope truly lies in. Does your hope lie in earthly pursuits? That according to endless amounts of scripture, these things will pass away (Matthew 24:35; Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear). Is your hope in man? Which we all know that every man dies. Or… Is your hope in the Lord, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, where the pathway to eternal life is?

This type of talk, and belief is very deep and heavy for many of us. However we really need to take a good hard look at what reality is. We all are going to die (unless we are part of the people spoken of in the above verse), therefore we need to start making decisions now so you don’t have regrets when your time is out. Nobody knows when there last breath is. Could be tonight, tomorrow or 80 years from now.

So, Live Smart, make sure your hope is in something that no one can take away.
