Remember the fall in Genesis chapter 3? The Book of Revelation is God’s triumphant response to what the enemy thought was his victory. It details for us how God’s redemption plan will conclude. One day everything will be made right again. No more pain, striving, death, sickness, no more sin. This is our living hope as believers in Christ.
Through Jesus’ resurrection, our hope is alive. And this hope found in Christ is always attached to our eternity. It’s not the kind this world offers. 1 Corinthians 15:19 says “And if our HOPE in Christ is only for this life, we are of all people most to be pitied.”.
Through Jesus’ resurrection, our hope is alive. And this hope found in Christ is always attached to our eternity.
It tells us that this plan of redemption He laid out for man is not just a promise of a better life here. It is a promise of a new life that we can begin living today and will one day be perfected in eternity.
As the Book of Revelation ends, it closes with a call for all to come to Jesus. Knowing that we have a secure future does not allow us to relax. In fact, the opposite should be true for those who have received salvation through Jesus Christ. Our response is mission. We need to let the world know of the grace and redemption we have received that all may come to Christ and be saved.
Today, we are given such a unique opportunity to share Jesus boldly to our neighbors and community. The response of the world to this epidemic shows that we are all in need of hope. The real problem is not going to be solved by a vaccine. Our friends and family need to hear the gospel. They need Jesus so let’s share Him to them. Let us be a beacon of living hope for those around us in the midst of despair.
Do you believe that you have Hope at this time?
How is God asking you to share that Hope to those around you today?
