Is There Hope 

Many of us are experiencing hard times. And during these times we all hope things will get better. Though financial crises, broken relationships, and terminal illnesses each tell a different story, they share the same question: “Is there hope?”.

The answer is yes. Through the resurrection of Jesus, the Lord has turned “mourning into gladness” and sorrow into joy. This gift has been received through our “new birth into a living hope.” 

As Christians, we are privileged to live as God’s new creation. “The old has gone, the new is here!”. The old way is defined by fear of judgment, shame for sin, and despair of life itself. The new way is defined by grace. Grace that welcomes home the wanderer, forgiveness that frees the shame-filled and love that equips for new service. 

Today, the newness we receive from God, gives us the privilege to hope for even greater things. As believers, we live for the day of Christ’s return, when “there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain”. Our ultimate hope is to live with God forever in his renewed creation! People with this hope will embrace life defined by Christ, the living Lord of all things, who will come again. Will you fix your eyes on Jesus today – our hope of all mankind? 

‘In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ…’ (1 Peter 1:3).

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank you for the gift of life and hope. Father, give me strength to face each day, courage to walk your path, and a heart ready to meet Christ. In his name, I pray, Amen.
