There is HOPE Today!
1 Peter 1:3-5 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."
Wow! If this doesn't get your blood flowing with gratitude, I don't know what will. The creator of Heaven and Earth has called you to be His child and you receive the eternal benefits of His kingdom. So God did all of the work through His Son Jesus Christ and We (those who have received salvation by Grace through Faith) so that we can have true HOPE regardless of the situation or circumstance!
If Jesus Christ had not been raised from the dead, there would be no HOPE. God has caused us to have hope in the resurrection because it is the resurrection which causes us to be born again. Without the resurrection of Jesus Christ there would be no salvation and no rebirth.
Have you ever faced a problem as huge as the results and consequences of sin? The answer should be an emphatic "NO!" Here's the question for you today. "If God can solve the problem of sin and solve it in a way where you didn't have to do anything other than receive the gift that He purchased on your behalf, can God also handle whatever situation that you face? Regarding that situation you are facing, is God therefore big enough to also give you hope in the midst of it? The answer = YES! You have to choose His hope today. To do that you have to focus on Him and his solution...not the problem...
Be encouraged as you live for Him today!
