THE HOPE OF - By Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: Romans 8:19-21

How fervently do we sing the familiar chorus, "This world  is not my home; I'm only passing through"! We, as members  of the Body of Christ, are suffering along with all of creation.  There will come a time when all suffering shall cease and the  restitution of all things will come to pass. Meanwhile, though  all of creation "hopes" for its pain to cease, the saints of God  live in expectation of the fulfilment of their promised claim to  glory: "For our citizenship is in heaven, from whence also we  look forthe Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ" (Philippians 3:20).  "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump ...  the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised  incorruptible, and we shall be changed" (ICorinthians 15:52).  While we have assurance of eternal life in glory, the world  does not; but we groan in sympathy- "until now."

Our Apostle writes of the "Lord Jesus Christ, Who is our  hope" (I Timothy 1:1). Those without Christ can see no  purpose or reason for their sufferings. They cry out in  despair; they even rail against God. The solution to their  dilemma is ever before them. There is yet time for them to  avail themselves of the way of escape from the shackles of  ceaseless doubt and destitution. "Now is the accepted time;  behold, now is the day of salvation" (II Corinthians 6:2b). "If  we suffer, we shall also reign with Him" (II Timothy 2:12).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
