Hope in the Living God

11 November

This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance.  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 Ti 4:9–10; NIV)

People put their hope in many different things; cars, jobs, countries, relationships, and even other people.  The problem is that cars break down, jobs are lost, the leaders of the countries can change their opinions.  There is one we can put our hope in who never changes; the living God.

Since the day Adam fell from grace, God has been trying to bring us back to himself, and in this, he has never changed.  God is the savior of all mankind, and he calls us all, makes no difference if we are red, yellow, black, or white, rich, poor, slave, or free.

God wants us to love one another and to love him, to commune with him, to worship and put our trust and faith in him, and to put all of our hopes in him.  I have tried putting my hopes in many different things in my life, but the one that has never failed me is when I put my hope in my heavenly Father, my Savior, the King of kings and the Lord of lords.  He has always been there for me and always will be.
