Where is our hope this year?

“Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Saviour and of Christ Jesus our hope.” 1 Timothy 1:1

As we think about the start of another year we really have little idea what the year will hold for us. In marriage we vowed to be together, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health because we really don’t know what life has for us. Yet at this time of year we tend to wish each other a happy new year and hope for favourable circumstances in the coming year.

As Christians though our hope is not in favourable circumstances but rather our hope is in Christ, and we sing:

“My hope is built on nothing less;
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame;
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.”
(My Hope Is Built by Edward Mote)

If we hope for better circumstances each year we can become disillusioned when things don’t work out the way we planned. But when we hope in Christ, our circumstances don’t have to determine whether a year is good or not. Recently I had a letter from a friend who, from the world’s point of view has had a bad year with ill health but she felt it was a good year because of what she had learnt about God.

So as we start another year let’s fix our eyes on Christ Jesus, our hope.
