A reminder for today
Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God's promises because of their faith and endurance. (Hebrews 6:11-12)
What do you hope for? Hope can be such a small word, but it can have massive implications. Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen. To trust that something will happen. Everywhere in this world people face different challenges and each one goes through the turmoil of loss and a desperate need for hope. In Matthew 12 God says that Jesus’s name will be the hope of all the world. We live in a dark world that desperately needs light. The birth of Jesus Christ, who is God’s salvation, brought the light that offers hope to a world of despair.
In order to hope in Christ, first we must recognize Jesus for who He is: God’s Christ, the only way of salvation. The most crucial question in life for each person to answer is the one Jesus asked His disciples: “But who do you say that I am?” Peter gave the correct answer to Jesus’ question: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus affirmed that answer, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven”
Whether you’re suffering from a difficult disease or grieving the loss of a loved one or facing overwhelming trials of some other nature, you can have hope if you will trust Jesus Christ as God’s salvation for you. He has won the victory. Those who hope in Him will not be disappointed!
In the end our greatest desire, must be Jesus and Him alone. In Him, we find hope and love which we can in turn give to other. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God's promises because of their faith and endurance.
Lord, you are all I want. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
