Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds …
encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

     – Hebrews 10:23-25

Hope. 

What a great word for our current times! Our world is in disarray and chaos. Everywhere we look we see pain and suffering, turmoil and strife, bondage and evil – our world is in desperate need of HOPE! We are all in need of it, and for those who are “in Christ,” we have it!  

The hope we have as believers is firm and secure - that’s what Hebrews 6 tells us:

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie,
we who have fled to take hold of the HOPE set before us may be greatly encouraged.
We have this HOPE as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure…” 

     Hebrews 6:18-19

Aren’t you glad our hope is in our unchangeable, glorious God?

As the “Day” (the last days) approach, things will get much worse. Those days will be times of great stress and intense evil, unlike anything we have ever seen. Today, and in the coming days, we will need to know where our hope is placed because the threat against our faith, and our love, will only increase.

This year, Topeka Bible Church Women’s Ministry wants to help you embrace your hope. We want to work together to “spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” We want to help you become a hope-filled person who reflects that Hope of Glory to others around you. God has made promises to you and HE is faithful – that is our HOPE!
