Our Advent Hope!
What are you placing your hope in today? Webster's defines hope as: "to desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment." If you are looking for hope today from our government, science or anything other than Jesus, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. So how can one remain hopeful in this dark, broken world of deception and lies? Our only hope and confidence are nurtured and strengthened through our personal relationship with Jesus! As redeemed believers we have been reborn into a living hope in Jesus' resurrection victory.
Friends, the Bible was written to provide us with encouragement and hope! When this world presses in on us and dims our hope, the Psalms are great place to turn. The Psalms express the writers' feelings and can often provide us comfort and hope. So, when things seem hopeless, open your Bible; our hope handbook, then immerse yourself in God's Word! God has given us a living hope in Jesus, and He also provides us grace and encouragement for each day of our journey. On this first Sunday of Advent, we are reminded our HOPE is found in Jesus; he alone has overcome this world, and is with us till the end of the ages. Jesus is Our Advent Hope!
