HOPE!


“Hope,” Do you have it this spring? Hope. I pray you do and I pray it extends beyond hope because of your present circumstances. I pray that you have the kind of hope that moves beyond the temporary and lasts for eternity. “We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thess 1:3. Do you see that? “. . . your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” That is the kind of hope I pray for you. When I think of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our God visiting us to relate to us, a dead man coming alive again, and an empty grave, I have hope that there is eternity, there is forever, there is more to this life than living and dying. Resurrection brings enduring hope!
“I turn my eyes up to the hills, from where my hope comes from. My hope comes from the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth!” Read Psalm 62, especially verse 5!
God Bless, Love in Christ, Pastor Jim.
