What’s the anchor for your soul? What sustains your sojourn here on Earth? Are they built on the unshaken promises of God or on the fading riches of this world?
These questions are not rhetoric. These are questions needed to be answered to ascertain the worth of foundation on which your faith is built on. As pilgrims here on earth, our goal is never to base our aspirations and desires on the corruptible.
Rather, we are expected to daily follow with diligence, faith and patience to inherit the promise of our Father unto us His Children. (Heb. 6:11-12).
The inheritance of which we have been begotten unto is that which is undefiled, ever shinning, fadeth not, can never perish, incorruptible and reserved. What more can one think of than this?
Why should I still struggle to lie like the people of the world do? Why must I toil day and night to lay treasures upon earth where moth and rust doth corrupt? (Matt. 6:19).
A life without Christ is worthless. No matter how well the person plays church, he has nothing. His perceived enjoyment ends here on earth. What is a creature without faith for the future-HOPE?
“For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul” (Job 27:8) “The delusive hopes of the unregenerate are vain and perishing; the hypocrite and his hope expire and die both together.”
It is therefore pertinent to be solidly rooted in Christ. This is only where our hope in Him stems from.
Hear this comment on HOPE:
“The hope of eternal life in a true Christian is a hope that keeps him alive, quickens him, supports him, and conducts him to heaven. Hope invigorates and spirits up the soul to action, to patience, to fortitude, and perseverance to the end.”
A Christian’s hope is the anchor and helmet for his soul. (Heb 6:19, 1 Thes 5:8). Are these your guiding principles? Even in the face of perceived problems, sufferings and persecution, our hope in Christ must be resolute, unshaken and infinite.
