Today – have hope!

There is hope! As I grow older in the Lord and learn more about Him, the greater the love I have for Him grows and so too my adoration of just who Jesus Christ is and how much He cares for me. My prayer at this time is that you, with each passing day, would grow in your passion and love for Him which causes us to desire to serve and please Him how ever I am able. It is amazing what He has done for each of us! For we were doomed to judgment for our sins, to have a life separated from God forever. How terrible hell would be when the realization you are to be separated from God Himself for eternity!
We could not save ourselves, an impossible task of which no one can achieve. But Jesus Christ came into our world just to save us – that is something to ponder and to give thanks for, every moment of our lives.
So, if we were unable to save ourselves, it meant that we had a life in which hope was totally missing. But because of what Jesus Christ did, in that He came to our earth and suffered and died in our place, paying fully the price, for every one of our sins, we now have hope – we can know for sure we will go to heaven when we die. We can have our sins forgiven, all of them! We can begin living a new life, again by God’s grace. In fact, our journey through life can now be different because we are now travelling on God’s path.
Even before time began, God knew all about us and planned this new life, this new path for us. He looked across the ages and saw that we would be helpless and lost without Him in our sin. We were unable to find the right road on our own even though we tried every which way. God saw you from all eternity and He planned to provide another way, His way that would take you to heaven someday and because of that, we now have a purpose and a peace in our lives!
Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
As Christians, may we be reminded each day, of the glorious hope we each have. Perhaps you may know a brother or a sister who seems to be personally unaware of this hope, that is available to them. Will you remind them, encourage them and share once again all the amazing things Jesus Christ has done for those who name His name. Sadly, I see too many Christians, living as people of the world, unaware of the hope that they now have.
When we can find this hope in bucket loads each time we place ourselves at the foot of the cross and remember with amazement and awe, what Jesus did for us, how much He loves us, and what He desires for our lives right now!
This hope is amazing…because it is found in a living person – His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the King of kings and He is the almighty God. Love Him with all your heart today!
