00169 - Joyful in hope
Updated: Mar 10
Jesus is the hope of our lifetime, the hope that enables all of us to have the opportunity of Eternity. When God sent Jesus to earth, it was with the intent for Jesus to invite God’s creation back into relationship. That cost Jesus in his earthly form, his life.
John 3:16-17 says 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him'. (NIV)
Hope encourages us to believe in faith that God can act in any situation. Hope persuades us for outcomes we have not yet known. Being Joyful in Hope is a gift from God. Don’t ever stop believing, never give up, each new dawn brings the possibility of breakthrough.
Hope is our future, Joy is our opportunity.
Lord, help me remain in Hope, let me convey Hope through Joy, Amen.
Take some time to write down everything you can think of Joy and Hope, write it down, be thankful for what you’ve written.
