Friday, First Week of Advent: Hope
December 5, 2014
“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.
