Well, Iâ€™ve certainly seen a lot of people tossing around a lot of different perspectives on this recent election fiasco. And especially in the presidential election results. If youâ€™re a Trump supporter, youâ€™ve probably been at least a little concerned over the way things have gone. And I saw one person say, â€œWell, I sure hope for a better day tomorrow.â€
Some people have absolutely no hope for a better day.
Not today. Not tomorrow. And not ever.
But itâ€™s their own fault.
â€œWow, Tony. Thatâ€™s a little brutal, donâ€™t you think.â€
Maybe. But thatâ€™s how truth can be sometimes. Brutal. And concise. It can cut your heart out. Or it can cut you open so you can have a heart transplanted. And obviously, thatâ€™s a metaphor. You DID catch that, right? Not a literal heart, but a metaphorical one…oh, never mind.
Moving right along. And back to those people with no hope.
The only way most people in the world have hope(they think) is when they see something or someone that gives them hope. And when that something or someone doesnâ€™t come along, voila. No hope.
But there IS a hope you can depend on.
And you canâ€™t even see it. But like a guy named Paul said, â€œWhy does one hope for what he sees?â€ Then, itâ€™s not hope. But what you see is subject to change.
And Christians understand that what we canâ€™t see isnâ€™t subject to change.
Of course, Iâ€™m talking about the change thatâ€™s coming. Redemption. Body, soul, and spirit transformation and transportation.
Or you could put your faith in the so-called â€œrule of lawâ€ in this broken and falling world. But youâ€™ll discover just how low itâ€™ll let you down. And Iâ€™m talkinâ€™ lower than a snakeâ€™s belly in a wagon rut. Now, thatâ€™s low.
So, look up. Because thatâ€™s where hope arrives.
The only hope that can ever change lost lives.
