*Jesus Our Hope*
*/"We have lasting hope through the salvation we have in Christ ... Hope means that even when it looks like it's all over, it's not all over yet.
That's why the Bible says we can rejoice even in our tribulations.
God is working in our hard times to produce proven character and hope in us."/*
\\ -Dr.
Tony Evans, /Totally Saved/
*Psalm 33-22* \\ /"May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you."
/(NIV)
*Jesus Our Hope*
For millions of people, the Christmas season means nothing more than parties, gifts, decorations, and time off work.
For Christians, however, this time of year is a happy reminder of the hope we have because of Jesus Christ.
Before Jesus came, God seemed distant, hidden in the Holy of Holies in the temple, accessible only to the high priest.
Worshippers wondered whether their sacrifices were acceptable.
They doubted their salvation.
Christ means hope—to the person out of work, to the struggling single mother, to the dying believer.
Even if you're just slogging your way through the disappointments of life, if you have Jesus, you have hope.
And he is not a false hope, a childish fairy tale that we wish will have a happy ending.
When Christ rose from the dead, that ended the argument.
Period.
Our hope in him is solid and it is real.
Christmas is a renewal of that hope.
It reconfirms it for us if our vision has grown dim.
It was settled long ago, so we don't have to doubt any more.
Jesus is the fulfillment of our hope, our deepest longings come true.
