Hebrews 6: 19: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 20: Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.


Hope is an earnest desire for an object, accompanied with the expectation of obtaining it.  Spiritual hope includes that, but it also includes something natural hope does not. It includes the sure and steadfast assurance that we shall receive what we hope for. The object of the believer’s hope is Christ.  Our expectation is to be with Christ in glory in His perfect righteousness. The assurance of our hope is Christ, who himself is our Hope. Our hope is sure and steadfast because in and by Christ all God’s covenant-promises are fulfilled for us, apart from our works.
