Hope In Jesus

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

Shew! October seemed to sneak right up on us didn’t it? Fall is now in the air and that means the holidays will soon be approaching! With the holiday season quickly coming upon us, I felt the Lord leading me to talk with you about our opportunity for endless hope. When Jesus was born, it was a day we all will remember and will celebrate for our entire lives. Jesus was born with such a great purpose, to be our Savior!

In that, we have hope for the future, that one day we will be redeemed. Hope that all the struggles and obstacles of our lives will not be greater than God’s purpose. Hope and the reminder that the present time we all have a divine purpose. Hope that no matter the day or the hour, we are never alone, as God is always by our sides. All of these moments of hope are here because of Jesus our Savior.

Jesus paid the ultimate penalty for our sinful lives by dying on the cross. He then rose from the dead so that we too would have eternal life, when we perish from this earth.  Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 1:1) is our hope for all things. Jesus came to bring us hope, but in that, He also is our hope.

we have hope

We have hope in all moments of our lives, that we are forgiven of our sins, we have eternal life when we accept Jesus as our Saviour, hope for a better tomorrow, and so much more. No matter what we go through we always need to remember to have that hope deep inside us.

Lord, we thank you for sending your son to be our Savior and filling our hearts with hope. We thank you for the unconditional love you give, the promises for our lives, and eternal life. As I go out today may the joy of the Lord be my strength and hope today. As we begin the holiday season, help me to remember the true meaning of Christmas. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

In Awe,
