The world’s hopelessness stands in stark contrast to the genuine and lasting hope that God offers. To be sure, the present joys of salvation cannot compare with the ultimate, surpassing joys that divine hope guarantees for the future, when salvation is fully realized. Since eternal glory is the reason for God’s saving plan and purpose, scripture sets forth a complete theology of hope. Hope finds it beginning in the unchanging God, who cannot speak anything but the truth. Hope founded in the immutable and eternal Deity is sure and absolutely fixed. So certain is our hope that the author of Hebrews could write in Hebrews 6:19-10 “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which enters into that within the veil; whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made a high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedec.” Because God never changes we can rest in our expectations that have been given to us through God’s Word.
