Our Only Hope

Read today..."The Lord observed the extent of the people's wickedness, and He saw that their thoughts were consistently and totally evil.  So the Lord was sorry that He ever made them.  It broke His heart." Genesis 6:5,6 

Evil is definitely embedded into the human story.  Just being honest here...I have no illusions of being a pretty good person.  Coursing through me,deep down, are things like resentment, jealousy, rebellion, bitterness. some words from Isaiah 62:11 pops out to me..."Look your Savior is coming". Jesus gives us Hope.  a passionate, real, battle-scarred Hope.  Only His Hope can conquer heartaches this incredibly strong, or wounds so deep, and pain that is as fresh as the Tri-Cities Herald headlines I read yesterday.

A Savior would arrive...a deliverer...a king whose kingdom would never end...a prophet who would speak for God...a priest who would offer a a final and ultimate sacrifice...a man who would bring blessing to all the races of people...Isaiah 9:2 predicted, "the people who walk in darkness will see a great light.  The light will shine on them." and Isaiah called him "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (9:6)

The Hope He would bring was not cheap, but as costly as life itself, and as bright as the sun that rose in Eastern Washington this morning.   O How I Love Jesus....O How His Hope will sustain ,,,O how I wish I could describe Him for you......
If you love Jesus today, lavish His Love on all the people around you....If you don't know Jesus and want to chat more and know Him then send me a private message and lets get this conversation started.  Jesus is our only Hope.  
Just sayin........
