What an assurance we are given in Hebrews 6:17-19a (ESV):
So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf…
(My Art Journaling Bible is KJV.)
The spiritual connotation of the word “hope” makes me think of the old hymn:
“My hope is built on nothing less,
than Jesus blood and righteousness…
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand!”
(On this page, I used sketching and watercolor.)
Love it Barb....and all other ground is sinking sand. Thank God for the hope He gives us in Christ.
That's right, Linda (I see you remember the old hymn as well!). Thank you, and yes, Thank God for our hope through Christ.
