…because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as it has been doing in you also since the day you heard of it and understood the grace of God in truth; (Colossians 1:5, 6 NASB)
People are longing for hope. This world in it’s dishonesty and apathy has nothing to offer us. But there IS a hope. It’s my own hope, your very own hope that one day we’ll be in a place of the light of truth and the warmth of perfect love. Because we have our hope waiting on us in heaven we should be sharing it not pushing it or shoving it but gently applying it to a need in someone else’s life. That’s how the good news grows. That’s how the light of truth and warmth of love grow here in this world by the grace and truth that we hold in our hearts.
