“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. These, then, are the things you should teach.” (Titus 2:11-15a)
So we live as we should, we wait, and we do good. We are waiting for The Blessed Hope, therefore we have HOPE! Hope of a life eternal, a life transcendent above these puny worldly concerns, a life with and among the glory of God in the crystal city. Do not despair, do not be downcast, because we are rich,we have the Blessed Hope!
