TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

 WHAT FAITH MAKES POSSIBLE  [4]

          Consider that the faith by which we come to God and please Him is not without real hope.  While faith gives us a vision of how great our possibilities with God can be, it is hope that fervently expects and desires these possibilities to come true.  And this expectation moves us to emulate God’s character and grow in purity.  “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:3).  By faith, we seek to please God because we love Him.  Love’s highest wish is to please Him.  [I am indebted to evangelist Gary Henry of Indianapolis, IN for these thoughts]
