Friday, First Week of Advent: Hope

“Eternal life is set before us in the promise; the Spirit works faith in us, and hope of that life; faith and hope bring it near, and filled with joy in expectation of it”

We shall be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.  Titus 3:7

Eternal life is an inheritance and is not earned by works.  It is a divine gift.  God gives it of his own free will and it belongs only to his children.  God adopts us and this is his gracious legacy.
