Hope – This Hope is an Anchor
So many people are hopeless today. God swore in an oath and promised to bless us. The first hope is that we can trust in God's oaths and promises because He cannot lie. The second hope is our salvation: liberation from ignorance or illusion that our sins are okay. Only God can forgive through Christ. Salvation is an anchor for our souls; it holds us firmly to the fact that we have forgiveness of sin and redemption in Christ.
