Our Only Hope!
What are you placing your hope in today? Many put their hope in themselves or in other people, places, or things. The truth is, as Christians, we live in what may appear at times to be hopeless days. The more complex our lives become, the easier it is to become isolated and self-centered. God wants us to get our minds off ourselves and onto Him! Friends, the Lord is our only refuge and hope in this dark and fallen world. Confusion and hopelessness are sure to follow when we isolate and begin to rely on our limited wisdom and perspective.
In these challenging days, we must look to God's divine promises, found, and revealed in His Holy Word. Think about how the early church responded to its challenges, difficulties, and fears. They went forward boldly, even willing to lose their lives because they knew the gospel was their only hope. When relentless persecution broke out against them in Jerusalem, they scattered and took the gospel wherever they went. God does not want us to shrink back from our difficulties and focus on ourselves. It was, for a time, such as this that we have been called to model HOPE through the salvation message of Jesus. So do not give up, give in, or lose heart; our hope is, and always has been in the Lord the maker of heaven and earth!
Onward and Upward!
