setia dalam pengharapan

“sekalipun tidak ada dasar untuk berharap, namun Abraham berharap juga & tetap percaya” 

(Roma 4 : 18)

Ben Witheringthon, seorang profesor Perjanjian Baru yang terkemuka, sangat berduka ketika putrinya, Christy, meninggal karena sakit. di dalam sebuah artikel yang diterbitkan di majalah Christianity today ia berkata, “Biarlah air mata mengalir, asalkan kita tetap memiliki pengharapan di hati”. sebuah kebenaran yang agung, bukan?

kebenaran yang sama dipaparkan oleh Paulus. Paulus mengisahkan tentang Abraham, bapa orang beriman. usia Abraham sudah tua, Sara sudah mati haid (Kejadian 18). ia tidak mempunyai dasar untuk berharap mendapatkan keturunan. keturunan adalah satu hal yang sangat penting & berharga pada masa itu. namun, Paulus menggambarkan iman Abraham dengan sangat indah, “Sekalipun tidak ada dasar untuk berharap, namun Abraham berharap juga”. Roma 4 : 19 mencatat, “Imannya tidak menjadi lemah, walaupun ia mengetahui bahwa tubuhnya sudah sangat lemah”. inilah iman yang dewasa & otentik: tetap berharap walaupun situasi tidak memperlihatkan titik” pengharapan. itulah harapan yang bersandar pada karakter ALLAH yang setia, bukan pada situasi & keadaan kehidupan. harapan yang memandang pada janji ALLAH, bukan pada kata” manusia.

apakah saat ini kita mengalami kondisi “tidak ada dasar untuk berharap”, tidak ada uang untuk mendukung kehidupan, tidak ada orang untuk menemani kesengsaraan, tidak ada kemampuan untuk melewati pergumulan? tetaplah berharap kepada ALLAH, Sang Sumber Pengharapan, yang sanggup memenuhi segala kebutuhan kita menurut kekayaan & kemuliaanNya.

    I believe what you typed made a bunch of sense.
    But, think about this, what if you added a little information? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website,
    however what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention?
    I mean setia dalam pengharapan ~⛅~ day….by….day ~⭐~ is a
    little plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note
    how they write article headlines to get viewers to click.

    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people excited
    about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your
    posts a little livelier.
