Message of the Day: Our Hope Comes From God
“I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace while you trust in him. Then your hope will overflow by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13, NCV)
The strong must have a sympathetic understanding of the weak, and not act to please only themselves. Christ is the perfect example of one who always acted out of consideration for others, no matter what it cost him. Through the Scriptures, as well as through the example of Christ, God encourages Christians to live in unity with one another. Christ received all and served all, whether strong or weak, Jew or Gentile, and Christians must do the same.
Jewish Christians should be thankful for Christ’s faithfulness in fulfilling the promises given to Israel. Gentile Christians should be thankful for his mercy in extending salvation to them. Both should rejoice together in the hope, joy and peace that God gives through the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:1-13)
Our hope comes from God. It cannot be obtained by man’s effort; it is God’s gift by his Spirit.
