Every moment, every day, we ought to look to God for hope. We have a huge cloud of witnesses who have attested Jesus died, was buried and rose from the grave to sit at the right hand of the Father. The darkness does not surround us, for we know we have salvation through Christ.
“We must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. How shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard.”
God could simply deploy legions of angels to defeat those who persecute us on Christ’s account. Yet, He tries our faith with a refining fire so that we would treasure our hope in Him. The work of His hands is us. We are His children molded to reflect His very appearance.
Take heed not to drift away, chasing after doctrines that are not of God, but of Satan the devil, who prowls the earth seeking those who he may devour. Pray always and rejoice always, for God will not let one hair of our head perish without purpose.
Jesus is all we need. He delivered us from the bond of sin. He gave us true liberty by us believing He is the Son of God. Through Him, we have hope for eternal life. He points to God’s glory as the foundation of our joy. Let us treasure our salvation.
