Our Hope is not in a suffering-free life but in a suffering-free eternity with our LORD Jesus Christ.

“Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.“-{ 2 Cor 4:16-18}.

1.- Suffering, “Affliction” is working FOR us not aginst us in God’s economy,”…is producing FOR us….”

2.- It’s only “Light affliction”… “…In Comparison to”...”Eternal Glory.”

3.- Looking up, training our minds to think constantly depending upon the Holy Spirit to help us to… in order to live honorably in this world being about His business, by His grace! Heavenly Thinking motivates earthly living.

4.- Focussing By His grace- on Eternal realities.

  1. What we see is temporal apart from the Word of God and the souls of people. All else is passing away. Eternal realities consist in part of Heaven where our eternal home, citizenship, Savior, Heavenly Father, our receiving new Heavenly bodies, and the family of the followers of Christ are and will be. And also there is The absence of death, sin, sickness, decay, sin, there iis the presence of unspeakable joy, perfect peace, and love and the worship of God and the Lamb of God our theme, etc…

Ours “In Christ” is…The hope of eternal glory

God Bless,
