Hope I Will Pass

As I was growing up, every June I hoped I would pass from one school grade to the next. I was usually an above-average student, so I didn’t need to worry. But I was always anxious to get my report card and see if I passed to the next grade.
We hope that we will pass from this world and go to heaven. But if we live forever with God, it is not because of anything that we have done. Verse 5 of our Bible Reading says, “He saved us because of his mercy, not because of any good things we did. He saved us through the washing that made us new people. He saved us by making us new through the Holy Spirit.”
We can trust God and His promises. He gives us the hope of eternal life because of Jesus’ death on the cross. “The hope is like an anchor for us. It is strong and sure and keeps us safe” (Hebrews 6:19a).
Many people want to have the hope of living with God forever. Share the Good News about Jesus with them today!
