WE Have THIS Hope!

Reading Time: < 1 minute“We Have This Hope”

Do we have hope in Christ only for this life? Then people should pity us more than anyone else. (1 Cor 15:19, NIrV)

Why does Paul say believers would be “more to be pitied than anyone in the world” if there were only earthly value to Christianity? In Paul’s day, Christianity often brought a person persecution, ostracism from family, and, in many cases, poverty. There were few tangible benefits from being a Christian in that society. It was certainly not a step up the social or career ladder. More important is the fact that if Christ had not been resurrected from the dead, Christians would not be forgiven of their sins or have any hope of eternal life. If what Christians believe is a lie, we would be pitiful because we would be going through such suffering for no purpose. Fortunately, that is not the case! (Life Application Notes).
