We have a Hope. Our Hope is greater than an idea…it’s our God. Jesus, our living Hope.
We can face each day before us with confidence because we carry the living Hope in our hearts. God is Winner. Not only do we carry Hope, but also Victory. Our God can not be defeated. The end of this whole story is already written…and the victory belongs to the Lord.
It’s time for us to remember victory. It’s time for us to remember who we are. We are not subject to the earth. We belong to Christ.
Our desperation in this season should be focused on bringing souls into the Kingdom…not on fearing what’s next. We know what’s next. Let’s be confident in our living Hope. Let’s act like we know the truth.
We must guard our tongues and only speak God’s truth. If we don’t, we might be mistaken for the world. This is a set apart season. The lost deserve to see our apartness…so they can be drawn to the heart of the Father. We can no longer afford to be lazy Christians, only concerned with our own salvation. We must be concerned about saving all the lost. We are called to it. We are called to make disciples of every nation. It’s time to rise up.
We must remember our firm Foundation. We must remember we have a house built upon the rock, and those who are on sinking sand will be looking to us. They will look in desperation and we must be prepared to lead them to the Lord. We must be willing to be His vehicles.
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19
We must be willing to lead the lost to Jesus. That’s more important than many other things we so desperately focus on. We have the Hope of the world, and we must share the news. Start at home…then work your way out into the world around you. Trust God to lead the way and trust Him to highlight different people who are ready to receive the Truth.
Notice. Pay attention. Be aware. Most of all, be willing.
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fail, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Mathew 7:24-27
