Hope is the tether/anchor to the Divine.

Fully Satisfied Manifesto

We’ve talked about hope on this blog before. But, hope is the only thing we have in the current life to keep us going.

16-20 Among men it is customary to swear by something greater than themselves. And if a statement is confirmed by an oath, that is the end of all quibbling. So in this matter, God, wishing to show beyond doubt that his plan was unchangeable, confirmed it with an oath. So that by two utterly immutable things, the word of God and the oath of God, who cannot lie, we who are refugees from this dying world might have a source of strength, and might grasp the hope that he holds out to us. This hope we hold as the utterly reliable anchor for our souls, fixed in the very certainty of God himself in Heaven, where Jesus has already entered on our behalf, having become, as we have seen, “High Priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek”.

Hebrews 6:19-20, J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

Hope is the anchor that is securely fixed on God himself! Nothing can remove this hope because nothing can move God.

Exchange: How To Trade for Something Better

People often respond to me, “I just can’t conceive of how God can make me righteous.” I reply, “I’ve got a better question. How could God make Jesus become sin?”

Bob George, Classic Christianity

What a paradox! What irony! What an exchange!

Exchange

Yes. Precisely, exchange.

Life

“God’s action in the world takes place entirely in plain old messed-up human nature. He does not kill off sinners; rather, he himself dies a totally human death in order that they may live new a fully human lives in the power of his resurrection.”

– Robert F. Capon , The Mystery of Christ… & Why We Don’t Get It

Human. Covered in skin. Originating from dirt.

It’s a big deal to understand that Jesus was human. He was just as much flesh and blood, sinew and bone, hair and toenails as any of us. But, at the same time He was divine; like Creator of all, Partner in the Divine Dance of Love, and Elder brother of all humanity.

The gospel of John tells us that Jesus became flesh.

The Word became flesh
and made his home among us.
We have seen his glory,
glory like that of a father’s only son,
full of grace and truth.

John 1:14 CEB

You need to pay attention to the word that John uses for flesh. He uses the word “sarx” which is the same word that Paul uses for describing the “sin nature”. If John would have said that Jesus became human it could be the same as saying the Jesus was the Goodyear Blimp, here but not on the ground with us. Jesus became “sarx” and got in the trashcan of sin with us.

Jesus got in our trashcan of sin with us and got out as all of us! Now, we can live in His resurrected life!

GOOD NEWS!!!
