“THE BIBLE USES THE WORD “HOPE” TO REFER TO SOMETHING THAT IS CERTAIN. . We tend to use it referring to something that is uncertain. Today I have the hope of eternal life, through Jesus Christ. He died for my sins so that I can experience the life of God. Jesus Christ rose from the dead so I could know for certain that He has power over death and He has the power to impart that same eternal life to me. Although I am not experiencing eternal life in heaven right now, I know for certain I will be spending eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven, and live with God for all eternity!
