The gospel of Jesus Christ is our hope for eternity. Nothing else that this world has to offer can provide the assurance and contentment that we need. For some it may seem strange or even impossible. However, when we look at what is happening in our world, similar thoughts become real.
Our world is in literal chaos. Wars and possible wars plague our thoughts. Crime is rampant, and the forms of crimes change almost daily. The family structure is practically obsolete and people in places of influence use their time to criticize, rather then help. Children are dependent upon the electronics and gadgets of this age, while relationships are obsolete. The family structure is obsolete, and race relations are in the worst turmoil since 40 years ago..
Only a faith in Jesus Christ can provide the hope and help that we need. We need the hope that we are offered in the word of God.
Psalm 16:9 tells us:
“Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope.”
These words are a reminder that gladness and security are ours when we find peace in God. Once that is secured, then we can gladly make the difference in the world that the world needs. The world needs the gospel of Jesus Christ, and the world needs believers who are secure in Christ - Jesus.
You will only find hope in life when you find Christ Jesus as your Savior. It may sound too good to be true, but that is the way God presents it to us. Accept Him and discover a new outlook on yourself and the world we were called to serve.
God bless you, and may you find peace, joy and purpose in the gospel of Jesus Christ, that was given to us for eternal salvation.
