Jesus – Our Hope
As we enter ADVENT, I would like to share a word from the book of Titus chapter 2:13-”while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ…”.
He really is our BLESSED HOPE! Whatever you are going through right now- there is HOPE to be found in him! Even though things are tough, even though 2020 has catapulted us into extreme times of hardship and suffering for many impacted by the Coronavirus- there is STILL HOPE!
How? Because JESUS is alive! JESUS is KING! JESUS is the one wearing the CROWN of life! Allow me to remind you that HIS NAME is above ALL the other names!
And therefore, we have HOPE! You see either God is a liar, or he is speaking the truth. I believe the later. Do you? Read Numbers 23:19: ”God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Whatever God has spoken – He will also FULFILL it.
We are bombarded with fake news- every day. The enemy is trying to confuse us with his lies. In order to not be swept away and be caught in the world wide web of lies – we need to speak forth TRUTH!
In John 14: 6 we read that JESUS is the way, the TRUTH and the life.” So, if God speaks truth reassuring us that he has good plans and a future for us- there is HOPE! (Jeremiah 29:11).
And now I would like to invite you this Christmas to PROCLAIM the truth together with me:
JESUS is alive
JESUS is KING
JESUS is seated on the right side of God, our Father, in heaven
JESUS is the Almighty one
JESUS is ………………………………….and THAT`S why there is HOPE!
