The pleasures of life a fleeting, and the allure of wealth and fame rapidly disappears. Once we lose our wealth, our fame, our good looks, our health, who wants to know us? All this ends in death, so the world cannot offer any hope at all.
But our hope is in Christ who has conquered death and brought new hope to light, namely that beyond death there is resurrection to new life. This is the hope we have as Christians, that not only in this life will we have hope, but that hope reaches beyond the grave to the future.
