Where Is My Hope?

Tom Angstead November 21, 2011

First I must say I am writing this because I need to remember this daily.

Page 44 in the The Gospel Primer says “ When looking at the sheer weight of unseen glories to come, my troubles seem light by comparison; and when looking at the staggering length of eternity, my troubles seem fleeting by comparison.  It is only against the backdrop of a glorious eternity that my circumstances can be seen in such a manner; and the promise of this glorious eternity is part and parcel of the gospel itself”.

My confession:  there are times I can think and say to myself “Come Lord Jesus” Rev 22:20 because I am tired of trials and the hardships of life.  I desire to always say to myself “Come Lord Jesus” because I love Jesus and desire to spend eternity with Him.

If you are like me and I am certain a few of you are, would you consider evaluating how you view these trials, these momentary light afflictions 2 Cor 4:17 and consider how you can keep our minds focused on what is unseen and eternal. 2 Cor 4:18.

Prayer

Lord I desire to be a man full of your Spirit.  That I would be a man full of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,faithfulness, gentleness, self-control Gal 5:22-23. Lord please allow your Spirit to convict me when I lack joy so that I may confess it as sin 1 John 1:9 and repent.
