Hope is usually a vehicle which leads to glory. When hope is absent, individuals struggle to find meaning and purpose in life. However, as soon as the fruit of hope is conceived, this invisible source leads people to reach their final destination. The hope of glory is achieved when souls put their faith in Christ for eternity.
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory, Colossians 1:27.
In a world full of disappointment, its hard to find something that will last. While Israel was always known as God’s chosen people, those outside of this nation developed an inferiority complex. Nonetheless, the Bible promises a day when Gentiles will be introduced to the glorious riches of Christ. Thus, the moment anyone confesses with their mouth and believe in their heart that Jesus Christ is Lord, the hope of glory is obtained.
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ, Romans 10:17.
As this modern age turns toward a progressive life style, the words of the Bible is being discarded as a source for truth. In return, the narrative of this historic book is being devalued causing many to lose their faith. The best way to combat this reality is to daily listen to biblical principles. Unless a devotional and prayer life become deeply rooted, experiencing the hope of glory is a pipe dream. Therefore, before its too late to repent, place your trust solely in the Holy Spirit so that Christ within you will be manifested as the hope of glory.
