We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.
Believers all over the world share beautiful things in common: Thinking about the accomplishments of Jesus on the Cross is a thing of great Joy. Having the understanding of a rest with God, a rest from the toiling and sorrows of this world. Oh, how much Joy that fills my heart when I remember that glorious day. On that day all our tears will be wiped away, we shall seat in heavenly places with our master, friend, and brother, Jesus Christ.
Oh lord, open our eyes to behold your glory, show us a glimpse of the great experience you have prepared for us. Our hope is sure, it is steadfast. This hope is an anchor for our soul.
Dear friend, do not be distracted, just a little while your redeemer shall come. There is no pleasure on earth that is compared to what the Lord has prepared for those who love him. This is the time to be committed, it is the time to hold the plow and never look back (Luke 9:62). Hold on friends, Hold on.
Sweet Jesus, Our hearts long for you. We desire you deeply, as the deer pants for water so our souls long for you. Satisfy our thirst O lord… Fill us up with your Holy Spirit that we may be strong to keep holding on. Amen.
