Day 4 Hope in the Cornerstone

Hebrews 6:19

We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,

What do I hope in? If I think about it, I use the word hope quite often. I can hope that we have nice weather so that we can participate in outside activities. I can hope that I can get my children to bed on time so that I can have a little time to myself or to spend time with my husband and unwind from a busy day. I can hope that I am not stopped by any red lights so that I am not late for an appointment. I can hope in a number of other trivial things that will not matter much at the end of the day. Is my hope in something sure or steadfast? Is my hope in Jesus? Or is my hope in my circumstances? If my hope is in Jesus than it is in the One who enters into the Holiest of Holies. He is in the place behind the curtain. He tore down the dividing wall between God and man.

Ephesians 2:14

For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility.

I am going to try to remember this verse the next time I use the word hope. I am so thankful that I can anchor my hope in Jesus, my cornerstone.
