"Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God."
Things are different for Eugene now. He still struggles with challenges, and life is still difficult, but he has been given the wonderful gift of hope. Just as the scripture above says, as he acted on the things of God (or exercised his faith) he was able to find within himself a hope for a better world. He can see the light at the end of the tunnel and feel the support from Jesus Christ nudging him forward. He knows that there is a hope for him and his future, as well as the future of mankind. I leave with you my testimony that I know that Christ lived a perfect life, and after suffering the price of our sins, died for us. Because of His sacrifice, we, like Eugene, can exercise our faith and repent. With constant and persistent effort, we will see the same result, and will be given the gift of hope. I can testify of the truth these things of myself, because I have lived and experienced them for myself. In striving to be sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, we will be given that great and marvelous gift of hope.
