Day 20: Jesus Christ is our Blessed Hope

Breathe in God’s Truth

Waiting for our 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 lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

Titus 2:13-14

Passages to Study: Psalm 146; 1 Peter 1:3-9, 13; Colossians 1:24-29

Questions to Consider

  1. The word “Hope” used within Scripture refers to both joyful anticipation as well as a settled assurance of something to come. According to the passages given, in what should your “joyful expectation and confident assurance” rest?
  2. In what temporal circumstance or person might you be tempted to hope? Why is Jesus always better? How would your day look if your hope was placed fully in the promises of Christ’s return?
