Daily Scripture Hope and Reward: Part 5

Those who are rich in this present world should not be arrogant or set their hope on the uncertainty of riches but on God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.  They should do good, be rich in good works, and be generous and willing to share.  In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the future, so that they may lay hold of true life.  (1 Timothy 6:17-19)

The Lord will deliver me from every evil work and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom.  To Him be glory forever and ever.  (2 Timothy 4:18)

My hope in God is an anchor of my soul, both sure and steadfast, and it enters the inner sanctuary behind the veil, where Jesus the forerunner has entered on my behalf, having become a high priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.  (Hebrews 6:19-20)

I will hold fast the confession of my hope, for He who promised is faithful.  (Hebrews 10:23)

Like Abraham, I am looking for a city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.  (Hebrews 11:10)

By God’s grace I want to live to the end in faith, knowing that I will not receive the promises on earth, but seeing them and welcoming them from a distance, I confess that I am a stranger and a pilgrim on the earth.  Instead, I long for a better country, a heavenly one.  In this way, God will not be ashamed to be called my God, for He has prepared a city for me.  Like Moses, I esteem reproach for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of this world, because I am looking to the reward.  (Hebrews 11:13, 16, 26)

Here I do not have an enduring city, but I am seeking the city that is to come.  (Hebrews 13:14)

Blessed be the God and Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has given me new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is incorruptible and undefiled and unfading, reserved in heaven for me.  (1 Peter 1:3-4)

Now I am a child of God, and what I shall be has not yet been revealed.  I know that when He is revealed, I shall be like Him, for I shall see Him as He is.  And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.  (1 John 3:2-3)

God is able to keep me from falling and to present me before His glorious presence faultless and with great joy.  (Jude 24)
