Living Hope

As I post this, the election is undecided.

But before I enjoy a peaceful sleep, I want to share a thought.
As I scrolled through my social media, I saw this from Rick Warren, he tweeted,

"Our hope is not in the man we put in the White House,
But in the Man we put on the cross."

My hope is in the One, who I put on the cross. An amazing thought and even more an amazing love.

Romans 5:8 Paul writes, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Through Christ Jesus, we have a Living Hope.

Peter writes, " Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. 1 Peter 1:3-4

I'm reminded of the line from the great hymn,

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness,
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name.
On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.

King Jesus.

With Hope,

Joe
