3:334 – Hope In The Darkness

#faithbites #faithjourney hope

Setting

You are on your way home at night, step through your front door, and what do you do? If you are like most people, you turn on the light. Why? The light let’s us see and erases and doubt of what is around us. The light puts us at ease.

Today, our Pastor preached on Hope In The Darkness. You may ask what this means? Hope is something that keeps us going. Hope helps us to keep fighting when we are tired and struggling. That hope, that light, comes in the form of Jesus Christ. He saves us, gives us hope for our salvation, and is a light in the time of darkness.

What hope do you cling to in the darknest night?

Scripture
  • Romans 15:13 – May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
  • Proverbs 23:18 – Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.
Reflection

As always, our hope is in Christ. The world may not understand our hope, and that’s ok. Because of faith, we are saved. If our God is true, which he is, of ur hope will not be cut off and we will have a future.

When that panic sets in before you flick the light switch or when you are walking in a dark parking lot and waiting to get to the car for a light, know you are safe. That panic will pass. Rest assured that our Lord and Savior will protect you, ease you,and comfort you.

Challenge

What is your hope in the darkness? To whom do you cling? Turn it to Jesus. He is our light and our hope.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, you are our hope and light. You alone have conquered the world. Help us to remember that at all times. That if we have faith in you, we can never be alone and should never lose hope.

Mighty Savior, life is challenging even as we enter the advent season. Let us remember that you were the hope in old times and are our hope today. Let us celebrate your birth and be reminded of your love and message of hope. In your name, Amen.
