Colossians 1:26-27 ‘That is, the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
We live in a fallen world, a world of turmoil. Even a fleeting glance at the news reveals the chaos and violence that abounds throughout the world.
We have swine flu and bird flu that are affecting China’s main sources of meat. We have the new coronavirus that is sweeping, not just though China, but across the world. It is reported by Guo Wengul, the richest man in China: The Chinese regime has hidden the facts about the coronavirus. More than 50,000 corpses were burned in 49 crematoriums in the city of Hubei alone and said that the number of people infected with the virus in the country is 1.5 million. So far around 400 million people are in lock down in China in order to contain the virus.
It is no wonder we see so many people without hope today. Hope is a word that is often misused . We use it as a verb, an action word. I hope I get a good grade, or I hope I make it to heaven. Hope is better used as a noun. My hope is Jesus Christ.
Jesus love for us is far beyond our comprehension. He is constructing a unique, beautiful place for us. He is our hope of glory.
