Thursday, May 24

Faith is the assured expectation of what is hoped for.—Heb. 11:1.

 

What a wonderful hope true Christians share! All of us, whether of the anointed or of the “other sheep,” hope to see the fulfillment of God’s original purpose and the sanctification of Jehovah’s name. (John 10:16; Matt. 6:9, 10) Such expectations are the most noble any human can cherish. We also long for the promised reward of everlasting life, either as part of God’s “new heavens” or as part of his “new earth.” (2 Pet. 3:13) In the meantime, we hope for the continued increase of the spiritual prosperity of God’s people. Those who are part of Satan’s world also have some sort of hope, but they may doubt whether theirs will ever be realized. For example, millions of gamblers may hope to win a lottery, but they could hardly feel sure about that. Real faith, on the other hand, is “the assured expectation” of our Christian hope. w16.10 3:1, 2

Faith is a powerful motivating force. When we have faith in Jehovah and Jesus, we do not just know about what they have done and will do for us. We have a strong desire to live in the way they have taught us to live. And we are eager to help others to get to know them. Reading the Bible daily can help us to build strong faith in Jehovah. We must have strong faith if we want to survive God's new world.
