You Can Have Hope In Difficult Times

Are you troubled by the days we are living in?  Has your faith been shaken by the progression of sin that has come to the forefront of our world?  When you and I lose perspective of God in our reasoning and worry, we are much like Peter who took his eyes off of Jesus when walking out to Him on the water.  Instead of focusing on Jesus, he focused on the storm.  Being scared in troubled times is good, if it propels us toward the gospel.  Yes, the fact that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died for the sins of each person in the world, resurrected after His death and will come again must give us hope!  Peter puts it this way:

14 But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. 15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.
[1 Peter 3:14-15 NLT]

Peter, encourages us as believers to know our suffering for doing good in bad times actually makes us more like Christ.  We can understand Him more by suffering unjustly as He did. More importantly, we can have hope because Christ’s suffering is what led Him back to His throne! [v.22] .  Do not be swayed by the taunts of the crowd, the election of a president, the agenda of special interest groups or the fear of an uncertain future.  You can have hope as a Christian!  Your hope is found in the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Know that hope, claim that hope and share it.

In Him,

Pastor James

Holy A New Series Begins This Sunday

There is a four letter word that Christians refuse to hear today.  This word holds the weight of eternity in its meaning.  Believers hear this word, sing about this word and even pray with this word but applying it to their lives is a different story.  This world needs believers who will not be afraid to make a difference.  Your family, friends and community need you seeking to be holy.  Learn about this and more on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am worship as we learn God's promises for those who pursue holiness.
