Phillipians 1:20

It all accords with my earnest expectation and hope that I have nothing to be ashamed of; but rather, now as always, the Messiah will be honored by my body, whether it is alive or dead.

Insight:  We all need to have a "hope" as faith is the evidence of things "hoped" for.  By faith we can have a hope of living a life that we do not need to be ashamed of.  If we "blow it" we can be forgiven and then press on to honor the Lord.

Prayer:  Father, thank you that I am forgiven.  I ask You to teach me how to be filled with a hope and expectation that I do not have to be ashamed of.  May I honor You in my life and in my death.  In Jesus Name.
