The following Gospel Tract is shared around the globe.
The hopeless are those without the power and person of Christ that is offered to the believing heart through Salvation of the human soul. The hopeless have a natural conscience void of spirit life. Spirit life includes the present holy life in Christ and future eternal life beyond the grave. Hopelessness is the heart of a person void of a future with Christ in Eternity. The hopeless have no expectation of future bliss or contentment in Heaven. The hopeless have no peace with God or peace with humanity in this present life.
The clean heart and spirit life gives the believer in Christ abundant hope and substance. This abundance I speak of is not worldly goods or worldly wealth. It's an abundance based on what Christ gives freely from within His redemption upon the human soul. It's called Salvation that your hope may abound.
Romans 15:13...Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
A man void of the power of the Holy Ghost within the human soul is a man void of future hope. Hopelessness offers man no contentment whatsoever in this present life. Without hope man cannot stand in the presence of God without shame or condemnation lurking in the shadows of his mind and his life. Without Christ no man can say he is content because in the inner most depth of his lost soul there will be a "hollow spot" an "emptiness", and a "void". This "hollow spot" , this "emptiness" and this "void" can be termed as hopelessness.
Hopelessness is the product of the the un-redeemed soul. Hope is never found in satisfaction that ripples from temporal things, material things, and monetary wealth. Only satisfaction found in the unsearchable riches of Christ can offer man real satisfaction. Satisfaction found in Christ is found only one way and that one way is the actual Christian experience. Therefore in the Christian experience one can rejoice in the hope that is lived out in everyday life through personal faith in Christ.
Romans 5:1-5...Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
The Grace of God we have today in the body of Christ keeps the Holy Ghost present in our hearts and lives. Experiencing Jesus and holding onto Jesus is our only hope in the midst of a cold, dark world. In closing with Christian love this writer's plea to all readers is take hold of Jesus ...the one who gives us hope the world can never provide. Hold firmly to Christ's person and presence and never, never, never...let go of Him. Jesus is our only hope. Glory!
