HOPE IS A CERTAINTY THAT GOD IS AT WORK, HE IS WITH ME, AND HIS WORD IS TRUE.
1 WE ARE JUSTIFIED –GOD ENDS THE SCOREKEEPING BETWEEN HIMSELF AND HIS PEOPLE!
CHRISTIAN, YOU ARE INFINITELY PARDONED, ETERNALLY FORGIVEN, AND PERMANENTLY JUSTIFIED!
The Bible identifies 2 types of peace when it comes to God. There is 1) peace with God and 2) the peace of God.
PEACE WITH GOD 1 FOR THE BELIEVER IS PERMANENT FOR ETERNITY
2 GRACE ISN’T THE STARTING POINT ALONE, IT IS THE STANDING POINT FOREVER.
THE ONLY HOPE FOR OURSELVES IS TO GIVE UP HOPE IN OURSELVES!
3-4 THE ROAD TO HOPE IS PAVED WITH SOME HURTS.
Tim Keller The benefits of justification are not diminished by suffering, they are enlarged by it!
5 NO ONE WHO HAS PUT HOPE IN CHRIST IS GOING TO END UP DISAPPOINTED!
