FAITH IS A LIVING HOPE!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).
Every Christian is expected to have a living hope which is the expression of faith in God. When your hope is dead, definitely your faith will be dead as well. But when your hope is alive, your faith in God will be active. The Bible says in the opening text that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Your faith should be active because your hope determines the efficacy of your faith in God. Faith without hope in God is dead and incapacitated devoid of tangible achievements in life.
The story of Abraham in the Bible is a vivid case study of hope that is alive and active. When your hope is alive and active, it boosts up your faith and confidence in the Lord. That is why the Bible says about Abraham in Romans 4:20, “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.” A living hope strengthens your faith in God and makes it active to God’s glory. Faith that is devoid of a living hope can never bring glory to God and achieve nothing in life.
Without hope that is living, one can never walk with God and please Him. If you must successfully walk with God, you are expected to believe in His Word. The Word of God makes your faith a living hope. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Of course, any Christian who wants to please God and achieve greatness in life should always desire to boost his faith with a living hope that is centered in God forever.
Daily Tip: A Christian is expected to keep his hope alive and active by exercising his faith in the Word of God. Shalom!
Golden Text: So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).
