Christ Our Hope (Part six)

WE appreciate Him being our Hope, and we have a hearty and joyful reception of Him in this relationship. The dethroning of self, the utter denial and rejection of self, is essential to the enthroning and crowning of Christ in our inner man. When Christ is clearly seen to be the only hope of our soul, and when He is spiritually received in this relation, the soul learns habitually and constantly to lean upon Him, to rest in Him, and makes no efforts without Him.

Psalm 16:9 "Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in Hope."

Psalm 33:18 "Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy"

Psalm 119:81 "My soul fainteth for Thy salvation: but I hope in Thy Word."

Romans 8:10 "And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness."

Galatians 5:24 "And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."

Romans 6:4 "Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life."

Romans 6:5 "For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection"

Galatians 6:14 "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our LORD Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world."

Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me."

Psalm 39:7 "And now, LORD, what wait I for? my hope is in Thee."

Psalm 71:14 "But I will hope continually, and will yet praise Thee more and more."

Revelation 1:5-6 "And from Jesus Christ ... the Prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever."
