Forum Post: Do I have a Heavenly Hope? Perhaps I should be asking do you have one. Im already sure about me. But if I ask you, maybe some of you will respond to this post.

No I don't believe so. I know, I know! Jesus died for us to give us a heavenly hope. But you see I'm not a Mother Theresa, I'm not a Gandhi, nor am I a Nelson Mandela nor am I one of many others in history who are more worthy for that hope.
No I have trouble just trying to be a marginally good man. So I believe that the most I can hope for is to be resurrected to God's kingdom here on earth, and that in itself will be a wonder to behold and to partake in.
But that does not mean that I shouldn't try or hope/pray for more! That is our test in this life ( I believe ), that we do our best every day not just for ourselves ( as the bible says we should love our-self ) but also for those we share this life with ( for we should love others as well as we love our-self ). That is why I am thankful for the opportunity to advocate for positive change in our world.
I may not ever make a difference, but I am grateful for the opportunity to try. And I pray that my efforts and motives will be taken into consideration on the day of the resurrection. As I pray that your efforts will stand you in good stead as well.
Forward the 99% and the effort to better our lives.
