Taken from the Gospel Tract
"Seven Pillars"

The one hope of the body of Christ is "the hope of salvation" (1Thess. 5:8). Unbelievers are "strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world" (Eph. 2:12). Other ways of stating this hope is the "hope of eternal life" (Tit. 1:2), or "hope of glory" (Col. 1:27). Eternal life is promised to God's people, "unto which promise", said Paul, "our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come" (Acts 26:7).

In the early 20th century, some Christians began to claim to receive salvation at the moment of conversion. They were persuaded to believe that they "got saved" when they came to Christ, and in spite of the fact that it has no biblical basis, this error became widely accepted. "Salvation" is not "conversion". Salvation is the one hope of believers, a hope which the world does not have. Believers look for Jesus to return and to save them from the wrath of God. That is the sure hope of the saints. If Jesus does not save us, we who believe are hopelessly doomed along with everyone else. As Paul wrote, "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable" (1Cor. 15:19).

No, my believing friend, you are not saved yet, though we have the hope of it if Christ by his Spirit dwells in your heart, then you have the hope of eternal glory (Col. 1:27), a hope which the world does not have. And we should, as Peter exhorted us, "be ready always to give an answer to every man who asks you a reason of the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear" (1Pet. 3:15). We humbly confess Christ everywhere we go, in both deed and word, for "confession is made unto salvation." Pointing us to our hope, the Master said, "Many false prophets shall rise, and will deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will wax cold. But he who endures unto the end, the same will be saved" (Mt. 24:11-13).
