In Hebrews 6:19-20 the writer says, “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” Our hope is sure and steadfast because of our Lord and the truth of the Scriptures. In Romans 15:4 Paul tells us the patience and the comfort of the Scriptures produces hope. We have hope as a gift from God and the more we interact with Scripture the more dynamic our hope.
This hope, this confident expectation, is bound up in the gospel that has been preached and is being preached to us and to everyone under heaven. Today, if you have not acquired this hope, why not acquire it today?
In Colossians 1:3-5, we find that our hope is actually laid up in store in heaven. There we find, “We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints; because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel.” Our hope is stored up in heaven because it is in Christ. He resurrected from the dead. He ascended to the Father. He is there making intercessions for us. Because of Him and all that He has done and is doing for us, our hope is sure and steadfast.
