Vital signs- Friday, April 9th, 2021



“For You are my hope, O Lord God; You are my trust from my youth.”

(Psalm 71:5)

 

What does the word “hope” mean in the Bible? It doesn’t mean “maybe.” We may use it that way in modern English, but that’s not what the word “hope” means when used in Scripture.

“Hope” means certainty, but not just any certainty. When the Bible says “hope,” it means a rock-solid assurance with anticipation, based on the Word of God.

When I was a little kid if me and my brothers were fighting in the car and things got to crazy , our dad would turn around and say, “When you boys get home, I’m going to whip you.” With my dad, I knew this was a rock-solid truth! We could anticipate it, but not with gladness!

Our hope in Christ however, our rock-solid assurance, comes with glad anticipation!


Share the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ with someone today. Maybe there’s someone at the hospital who needs you to speak words of hope. Maybe it’s a member of your family!
