00202 - Be a hope carrier
Updated: Mar 10
During Brexit, Covid, the Ukraine War and the cost of living crisis, people have been watching how people of faith like you and I handle the pressure and navigate the circumstance. When you hold hope in your heart, let people experience that.
Romans 12:12 says ‘Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying’. (NLT)
Our reassurance of Hope is Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith. The more we rely on His Hope within us, the more we exude that Hope to others. No matter what non-believers face in life, I’ve never known anyone in all these years of ministry that rejected an encouraging word, an expression of care and love. When people around don’t know what to do, they will automatically gravitate toward Hope carriers. So don’t shrink back, make sure you are stedfast in Hope, you will mirror Jesus.
You are the carrier of Jesus hope to those around you.
Father help me understand more of the Hope of Christ within me, that I could example that, Amen.
Don’t be shy to speak to people going through tough situation, the Hope within you will speak to them just by you being there.
