Hope (5)

Here is our last meaning for hope — “to believe, desire, or trust.” We can believe in Jesus. We should desire Jesus. And we can trust Jesus. Why? Because Jesus is God, and He is real. How do we know this? Our Bible Reading for today tells us so! Also, 26 out of 27 books in the New Testament have the words “Jesus Christ” in them. There are several different writers who wrote these books. They all talk about the same man — Jesus.
Also, creation shows us Jesus is real. Look at the trees, grass, animals and people He made. How did all these things appear? There had to be someone who created the earth and everything in it. Genesis 1:1 says, “God created the sky and the earth.” John 1:1 says, “Before the world began, the Word (Jesus) was there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Yes, Jesus is real. Put your hope in Jesus. Putting your hope in Jesus means to desire Him. It also means to believe in and trust Jesus!
