Heirs Of Hope

 

We’ve been justified
by His grace

heirs to the hope
of eternal life

though we too
we’re once deceived

now the Spirit’s poured on us
through Jesus Christ.

**********

I am an heir to hope for You are with me.

**********

“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived . . .”

“But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared “

“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit “

“whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”

“that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Titus 3:3,4,5,6,7. NKJV

My Spirit of grace

so you know who
I really am.

The Goal

 

Love
from a pure heart

from a good conscience
from sincere faith

not giving need to
senseless disputes

but to godly edification
and grace.

***********

I can follow good godly instruction for You are with me.

**********

“. . .nor to pay attention to legends (fables, myths), and endless genealogies, which give rise to useless speculation and meaningless arguments rather than advancing God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].”

“But the goal of our instruction is love [which springs] from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.”

1 Timothy 1:4,5 AMP
