John was a good example for us as a witness to Jesus. It is important to learn about the hope we have in Him.
In 2020, even with everything going on, one of the biggest ways I have been blessed is to sit at the feet of Native Christian voices and learn from them (all over Zoom!).
I found my basic, deep-seated fears were best dispelled by focusing my heart on basic, deeply-rooted truths.
Have you ever felt this way? “Is that all, Lord??” I heard you and I did what you told me.
What a mystery it is: how he loves; how the God of the universe came to us, lived among us, & died for us...
He is the true king – perfectly righteous, yet disciplined not for his sin, but for ours.
We, too, should remember all the things Jesus has done for us and will do in the future, and we can rejoice!
The flourishing of God’s world and the destruction of evil do not rest on human might, intellect, or wealth, but on the powerful, creative, and comforting Spirit of our faithful Savior-King.
In these times we must remember that our greatest desire is to be with our savior, Jesus, our only hope and joy in a world that (especially this year) feels hopeless and lost.
She is echoing a theme of the Old Testament: that God cares deeply and works on behalf of the poor, the lost, and the destitute.
During these times of great human suffering, God has used people to display His common grace. We continue to lift each other up in our great time of need and our world’s great groaning pains.
Like a farmer not wanting to uproot the crop by pulling out the weeds too soon, the Lord will reap the harvest when its fruit is fully formed, and only then will the weeds be thrown into the fire.
In a year full of fear, strife, grief, loss, isolation, and uncertainty, we can relate to not having answers to all our “why” questions as we wait for deliverance.
The Good News is that God will provide you comfort, and is there for you.
But we can be assured of God's nearness and His steadfast love.
Jesus came to have victory over the sin crouching at the door.
He has given us responsibility and authority to keep his house in order while he is away and we shouldn’t take it lightly.
We can have hope that because of the work of Christ we have fellowship with Him, and He sustains us to the end.
He is our foundation and the One who we can fully trust.
