New Years’ Growth Opportunity
The calendar makes a new start turning to 2021, and we all hope for a better year. Shannon Long writes the following:
With all of the conflict, hate, death, and uncertainty surrounding us, it’s easy to feel hopeless about this broken, chaotic world we live in. Thankfully, those of us who have chosen to know and follow Jesus have HOPE. Hope only found in Him. His life, death, and resurrection changed EVERYTHING. In this dark and broken world, we must find hope, gain hope, and maintain our hope in Christ and in Christ ALONE.
Hope is faith in the future tense. So the majority of faith is hope.
Hope is found in the promises God has given us – promises of freedom from sin. We can find so much hope in Scripture through the gift of eternal life made possible through His son, Jesus Christ. No matter what trials, temptations, or pain we may suffer, we can always hold onto the hope God extends to us.
Let’s spend January NOT looking at the circumstances that confront us,
but instead reading and meditating on God’s promises and what he has to say about hope.
