Jeremiah 33:10,11,15
Yesterday was the start of the Advent season.  Advent is marked by a spirit of expectation, of anticipation, and of preparation of the birth of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. Christmas is a renewal of hope. Christ means hope—to the person out of work, to the struggling single mother, to the dying believer; even if you’re just slogging your way through the disappointments of life. If you have Jesus, you have hope. He is not a false hope; a childish fairy tale that we wish will have a happy ending. When Christ arose from the dead, that ended the argument – Period! Our hope in Him is solid and it is real. In Scripture, according to the Hebrew and Greek words translated by the word “hope” and according to the biblical usage, hope is an indication of certainty. Hope in scripture means “a strong and confident expectation.”  Scripture oozes “hope” throughout the pages ending with the greatest hope of all and that is that we will have eternal life with Him. (Genesis 3:15) With having this confidence of hope, should we not share it with others? Should we not give hope to the hopeless this Advent season? Let’s do something radical this Christmas season and let us give the gift of hope. God Loves Ya;)
