Advent 2015 – Day 6 – Hope That Never Fails

POSTED ON DECEMBER 4, 2015

Advent candle 1This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance . . . we have put our hope in the living God who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe.  1 Timothy 4:10

“Oh I hope it doesn’t rain out the picnic today!”  “I hope I did well on that Biology exam.”  “I hope she will go with me to the prom.”  “I hope . . .” It’s like saying “I’d like for it to be so, but I just don’t know.”  In our ever-changing world, there are very few things we can count on anymore.   In the past quarter-century we’ve seen our society change at a break-neck pace, and not always for the better.  Isn’t there anything or anyone we can put our hope in that won’t let us down?

God.  God is the only sure and solid foundation for hope.

He is El Khi—the Living God and the source of all life.  Would you rather put your hope in a living God or in “chance?”  Chance is shifting sand.  Only the Living God is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

He is the Soter—the Savior of all men.  The greatest need all humans have is for a Savior, someone to rescue us from our sin.  God sent His one and only Son, the Babe we honor in this Christmas season, to pay the penalty for our sin.  He gives us hope because He is our Savior.

These things are true – they are trustworthy.  We can put our hope in God because He is faithful.  He promises salvation for all who believe, and He always—always­­­—keeps His word.  If you need a hope that never fails, hope in the Living God who is your Savior.  He is a trustworthy God and a sure foundation of hope.
