    Hope for Tomorrow

    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

    Scripture Focus: Romans 15:1-13

    I listened to someone with stage four cancer speak to his audience. He was facing reality as the doctor stood with test results in hand, saying, “I wish I could give you more hope.” The patient replied, “Oh, I already have hope. I just need help for my journey.” Later, wondering how to answer the “How are you?” question of many caring friends, he formulated this answer: “I am grateful.”

    This reminds me a bit of Paul who acknowledged his departure was at hand and spoke words that ring of hope. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing” (2 Timothy 4:7-8).

    God’s faithfulness to us is so great that we have bright hope for tomorrow. Though dark days loom ahead, His faithfulness sees us through. For all who place their hope in the atoning work of Jesus, He promises to carry us safely home.

    Insight: “For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.” (Psalm 117:2)

    grizcty: Sir; for our new



    Romans 15:13


    10And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. 11And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. 12And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust. 13Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. 14And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. 15Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, 16That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost
