A couple weeks ago at church we were going through Hebrews 6, and our pastor pointed out something I had never noticed before.
When he was studying, one commentator mentioned how this chapter points out three important reasons we can be sure of our hope in the Lord.
Whatever stage you are at in your walk with the Lord, we all need hope. A hope that will never disappoint.
This life throws us so many curve balls. The storms of life can be so overwhelming.
I think it is good for us to remember the reasons we can be sure of our hope in the Lord, and be reminded again of the greatness of our God.
God is Just - Hebrews 6:10
For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
These last couple weeks I have been reading through Job. Wow, that has been quite a book! While three of his friends were pretty off doctrinally, Elihu (the fourth and youngest friend) was right in one point at least - God is just and loving. He is righteous and good.
Our God is a God who will never forget you. Never forsake you. Never leave you alone.
He will choose right. He is not a biased God.
God is unchangeable - Hebrews 6:17-18
Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
God is never going to change. We can hope in Him because He is not going to ever change. He is a sure foundation.
When He says "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins," we know that won't change tomorrow. When He says He will always be with us, He won't leave or change His mind.
He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He cannot lie. We can trust Him.
God is approachable - Hebrews 6:19
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil...
God is just and unchanging, but He also is the Father we can run to, the friend when all desert us, the listening ear when no one else understands. We don't have to be afraid to enter His presence boldly, because He already paid the price.
At church, we talked about how, after Jesus gave His life, the veil that separated us from the Holy of Holy's was ripped from top to bottom. Through Christ, we have access into the throne room of God!
Is your hope secure? Will it disappoint? If your hope is in Christ, the rock that you can anchor to, your hope will never disappoint.
This world will fade, but Christ never will. Our possessions will burn, but Christ will never disappear. Our careers will end, but Christ is here to stay.
If your hope is in Christ, your hope will never disappoint.
