The Audacity of Hope!

April 28, 2011

"For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it." Romans 8:24, 25

An invisible rope? A rope that is cast towards you as life gets more difficult, a rope that will escort you to safety in a time that you cry out to be saved, why do we cry out and what do we cry for? This invisible rope called hope? An unseen desire that we can trust in, we place our confidence in, and we can hope even though it can't be seen. Why the audacity of hope? How dare anyone hope in something good! Hope is bold, hope is fearless, and hope is daring. Do you dare to believe that you can be saved? Not just saved, but saved by a hope that is invisible? Do you dare to believe that you can have what God has said you can have? Do you dare to catch this rope and allow it to be used in your life and then cast it out again to others? Love is increasingly becoming invisible too, but if this happens it is joining the ranks of faith and hope. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen." Hebrews 11:1 and hope is the confidence that we have in an unseen desire. So no matter if love seems to be invisible, it will always be here with us, and easily found amongst the ranks of faith and hope. Invisible ropes, yet lifesaving and powerful allies to us!

"And now abideth faith, hope, and love." 1Corinthians 13:13a Hope remains and is here now, will you dare to be bold enough to catch this rope called hope and allow it to pull you to safety? Will you cast this rope to another that needs to be saved? Give someone hope today!
