Lately I’ve been starting conversations with people by asking what gives them hope. Today I was talking with an older gentleman (in his early 70’s) at a bus stop, and I asked him what he is putting his hope in. He immediately told me he is putting his hope in Barack Obama. Then he pulled out a newspaper and pointed to the front page headline which said something about welcoming (or announcing) the New World Order. He pointed to it exclaiming, “That is what I’m putting my hope in!”
The god of this world is offering humanity a false and empty hope. As the evil and darkness increases, the Lord Jesus Christ shines bright! Think of the opportunity the Lord has given us at this time, to share the true hope of the Gospel to the lost around us. Ask people if they have hope. Ask them what their hope is. Then tell them Who the true Hope is, and why.
Lord Jesus Christ…our hope. 1Tim1:1
Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my God. Ps.42:11
