God’s Holy Fire: ‘Hope of the Holy’

And [an angel] carried me [John] away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. — Revelation 21:10 NIV

Revelation 21:10

Key Thought

The Holy Spirit brings hope. There is the hope for current circumstances that the Spirit brings through his comforting and enabling presence. The Spirit also brings hope for the future through the promise of Scripture and God’s visions for us of greater things that lie ahead for us. In a time of unspeakable danger and fear when John had his vision, Jesus’ call to his disciples was to be faithful even to the point of death. In that situation, this vision given by the Spirit is one of victory and hope. The Spirit brings hope — not a wish for a better future, but the assurance that a glorious future awaits us.

Today’s Prayer

O Father of mercy, thank you for giving me the assurance that a victorious future awaits. Thank you for giving me the Holy Spirit as a gift, a down payment, guaranteeing that glorious future. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
