Day 67/260: Read Romans 15
God is the God of hope to all who are faithfully obedient. Sadly, there are many trapped in false religions—Islam, Buddhism, Catholicism, and divisive denominationalism. Those who have been deceived by these and other anti-Christian religions possess only a false hope.
Those who enjoy true hope in God, however, can be filled with joy and peace in believing. The joy of the Christian life was announced by the angel unto the shepherds upon the birth of our Lord (Luke 2:10), and peace was prophesied by Zacharias (Luke 1:79).
These blessings of joy and peace allow us to not only have hope, but to abound in hope! There is nothing better than being a Christian because we know what awaits us! The promises of God are grand and glorious for His faithful children.
With hope in His truth, we can confidently sing with the church:
His oath, His covenant His blood
Supports me in the ‘whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
Memory (Copy into a notebook 5-10 times)
Mark 2:17. When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”
Pray a prayer of thanksgiving for God’s promises that create hope, peace, and joy.
