A Future and A Hope

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11 This is looking forward to the New Covenant ushered in by the work of Jesus Christ. The future was and is eternal life through Christ. * What happens if I don’t do what God wants me to do?
* Concerning Romans 11:17, How did they get on the tree in the first place? And how do i know when I’m on there that I won’t get broken off?
* I understand how religion can disappoint. Should we turn our eyes on Jesus alone, instead of staying away from religion?
* Will believers receive rewards in heaven? Do we receive rewards by helping others as we are led by the Spirit here on earth?

Jesus Himself is Our Hope

The Bible is filled with promises of hope. Hebrews 10:23 reads: ” Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” The hope we have in Jesus Christ is the same hope the early church had as they faced trials and tribulation of all sorts. We can hold tight to the hope of God because of God’s faithfulness.
* I understand there are certainly biblical criteria for divorce. But what happens if they don’t meet those criteria and remarry?

Wait Upon the Lord

Hope is the greatest motivator in the human experience. That hope comes from our understand of God. What he’s like… how he cares for and loves us. If God is the one who spoke all we know into existence than he knows all about us and knows what we need. “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable….” Isaiah 40:28-31
* If we’re all related through Adam and Even how can we experience romantic love?
* How is it that I do all the things I’m supposed to do – pray, read the Bible, and go to church – but it doesn’t feel like God is there? * How important is it to go to church?
* Jennifer found a copy of Simple Gospel, Simply Grace in a lost and found box. She calls to say it changed her life.

The Hope of Moses

What choices will you make in life in light of the hope that you have in Christ Jesus? Hope is an important reality for all of us. We all need hope. It changes our attitudes and actions. In Hebrews 11 we see the hope that Moses had. “By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin.” Hebrews 11:24-25
* It’s extremely difficult to believe GOD loves me. I’ve asked for forgiveness but when/ how can I forgive myself?
* What did Jesus mean by the Luke 14:26-27? “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.” * If God is God, why does he allow evil things to happen?

Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – Part 19

Fear keeps us wondering when the hammer of punishment will come from God. It also keeps us asking for forgiveness. Until we fully embrace the forgiveness provided at the cross of Jesus Christ, we will continue to beg and plead for God’s mercy. The good news is that, in Christ, we have redemption and forgiveness of sins. The perfect love of God casts fear aside.

Every Step You Take

“To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27 Christ in the person of the Holy Spirit is living in each believer.
