There’s much to be said about hope…
In 1 Corinthians chapter 13 we are told by our brother Paul “faith, HOPE and love” are the cornerstones of our belief in Jesus the Christ, our Savior, Emmanuel: God is with us.
Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. – Hebrews 11:1
Since the garden of Eden, the world, knowingly or unknowingly, hoped for a savior. Mankind created their own image of gods made out of the very created things of the true and living God — all in attempt to find something to worship and find salvation in. But God, in His infinite wisdom, unveiled His plan for salvation through men and women who sought Him and believed in the coming of His Son, Jesus.
Today, on the eve of Christmas I pray you are thinking of the Savior in whom we find hope and redemption. Without Jesus there would be nothing concrete to put our hope in. Our flesh fails us and all created things pass away, but Jesus lives forever. Through the plan of redemption we have the gift of hope and what a beautiful gift it is.
Some women are facing situations today that seem hopeless. Whether they be financial, relational, physical or emotional there are women across the Earth who long to be hopeful that their circumstances will turn around and yet, they don’t know who or what to hope in.
That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe. – 1 Timothy 4:10
Jesus is the Savior of all people, He is the Savior of all women. May we always believe in Him and hope in Him and love Him. He is our greatest gift. With Jesus, all things are possible.
