Endless Hope

Author: Pastor Greg Laurie

“We look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed.”
– Titus 2:13

We’re living in a time when a lot of people have lost hope. In fact, some experts have described Generation Z (8 – 23 year olds) as the hopeless generation.

One person has said that “man can live 40 days without food, three days without water, six minutes without air, but only one second without hope.”

If we have a proper biblical understanding of what Heaven is and all that’s awaiting us there, we should be happy. God loves us. God cares about us. He has a plan for our lives.

Ultimately, that plan is for us to join Him in Heaven for all eternity. We’ll be reunited with loved ones who died in faith and have preceded us to Heaven.

Titus 2:13–14 tells us, “We look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds” (NLT).

Therefore, we can have happiness—not from things or experiences, but from a relationship with God himself.

When you ask Christ to come into your life, He forgives your sin. And because of this, you can have hope.

Maybe you’ve lost hope today. You might have received the worst news imaginable from a doctor. Maybe you’ve lost a loved one. Or maybe you feel as though life isn’t worth living anymore.

You need Jesus right now. He says, “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in” (Revelation 3:20 NLT).

Jesus will give you the hope, happiness, and purpose you want in life. Life without Jesus has a hopeless end. But life with Jesus has endless hope.
