Christ In You The Hope of Glory

When we read this in God's Word, of course it is an encouraging thought of our present state of being the child of God, and of our future in Heaven.

But have you ever considered that this is also speaks to the hope of the "Lost World" surrounding us?

The only hope that is ever given to the lost souls you encounter is the Christ IN YOU that you show to them! The "Christ in YOU ..." is their hope of glory!

So we must ask ourselves, what of Christ does anyone see in me? Does the Christ that I show to others, give them reason to hope that their present lives can be different and more importantly that their eternity can be different?

You see, we can tell others of Jesus until we are blue in the face, but until they SEE Christ in us, what HOPE will they ever have that what we are telling them is true?

The next question then is - do we show Christ where ever we go? Do you share His love with the check out girl or guy, the store associate that is working the shelves, the waitress in the restaurant?

The evidence of current events shows that we are living in the last days of the Church Age ... two great signs of this are: 1) A great falling away from God's Truth; 2) The Gospel being delivered into all the world! Believers the world over are faced with the choice of being a part of one or the other of these two great signs. Jesus did say that “because iniquity abounds, the love of many will grow cold!” He is speaking of those who are Believers, who at one time loved Him and righteousness but that give up because of the pressure of abounding iniquity. Sadly, the world is seeing far too much of this sign!

I don't know about you, but I choose to be part of the second great evidence ... delivering the Gospel! How about you? Jesus instructs us to “let our light so shine before men that they see our good works and glorify our Father Who is in Heaven!” In other words, let the light of Christ shine through me so that the world around me sees the truth of Christ and then be prepared to give answers to those who see a hope in me that they do not have!

I am committed to SHOW Christ in me, so that others will have a reason that gives them genuine hope (or confident expectation) that should they call upon the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation, their lives will be eternally changed!

Be Blessed!
Dr. Timothy Hoflund
