The Great Hope We Have

Where there is nothing else, there is always hope. Faith is a product of hope. without faith it is impossible to please God. This hope that produces faith comes from knowing God {Our Lord and Our Friend}.

Because of the mercies and love of our Lord, we can always have hope. There are times when we do take our focus off God, and the consequence may be for a short time we lose hope, but He is always there for us. If we let Him He will always restore our hope.

It is important to remember if we focus on God and not on the problem, we will be strengthened in our circumstance. We should be the best advertisement of our faith. People are suppose to be drawn to Christ Jesus because of what they see of Him in us.

The hope and the love that we have should be our witness for Our Lord and Our Friend. Jesus said in John 13 verse 34 and 35 “I give you a new commandment; love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. by this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

When we come to Jesus we die to self, so that He by the power of the Holy Spirit will live through our life.

When we lose our faith and our hope, we are saying to the Holy Spirit we are having trouble with the fact, that He knows what is best for our lives.

We are on a journey in a world that has been corrupted and damaged by sin. The world is separated from God. we who have accepted Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross, are in the world but not of it. Our lives are transformed into a new way of living, with new hope, and a bold plan for the future. This world is waiting for that Hope that Our Lord and Our Friend has given to each of us

We can always pray. “Dear Lord Help me to never look back and always trust you, as I know and believe you always have the best for my life. Dear Lord help me to take Your story deep into my heart, and help me to share it genuinely with others. Give  me the great joy and honor and privilege of leading others to You and the great hope they have in You.”

This is the hope never forget it, it is an eternal hope, a hope everlasting, a hope that will never let you down.

Grow in your Hope and Faith, as you live the victorious life He has made for you. Everyday with Jesus is a new day. Have great expectations of what you and the Lord can do together if you let Him.

God Bless.

  1. I admire your faith, you seem sincere. In my experience people are far more open to those who are real with them. Christians need to admit their frailty, failings and struggles in order to shed the reputation of generations before, who unintentionally painted an arrogant picture of His followers. We need to be who we are, led by the Spirit but allowing the Holy Spirit to do His job without us, trusting Him to do what only He knows is needed in the hearts of others.Because we really don’t know what is going on under the surface of others’ lives, but God does. To be human is to be vulnerable and nothing is more powerful than the spiritual maturity demonstrated by openly vulnerable and real people. God bless you.

    • Thank You for you comments, Feel free to write to us anytime. ROMANS 8 verse 1 Refers to being In Christ, The In refers to an ‘Enveloped In’. We are ‘In’ Christ Jesus, He is with us all the way on our life journey, But even though we are In Him, we are still sinners saved by Grace. We have become dead to self and alive in Him, which is the most wonderful thing about Salvation He is with us to help us go through anything. We can still can do wrong things self does give up easily, but with Our Lord and Our Friend, he said He would Never leave us or forsake us. He Never gives up on us. God’s Richest Blessing to you Your Brother In Christ OFJ.
