GOD HOPES ALL THINGS: God is the author of hope.
Real hope does not deny reality nor hang its dreams on some
delusional, brightly-shining star. Wishful thinking is not true
hope. God does not pace up and down the corridors of heaven,
wringing His hands, muttering to a host of angelic beings,
"Gosh, I hope they make it. I hope they do what's right. I'd
really like them to be part of my forever family."
That kind of
anxiety is found only in the human heart which does not know what
the future holds. But God knows everything everyone has done,
everything everyone will do, and He's not worried about anything!
True love seeks to impart hope, not destroy it. Perfect hope is
GOD ENDURES ALL THINGS: Nothing in all the
universe can weaken or diminish even slightly God's love for us. He
has already endured all the pain and shame of hell itself on our
behalf. He continues to stand firm in our defense against all
adversaries. Jesus Christ is our greatest cheerleader and He's
committed to go the distance. He will never turn away from His
beloved people half-way through the race. And He is the one who
will be waiting to congratulate and receive us when we cross the
GOD'S LOVE NEVER FAILS: God will never at any
time throughout all eternity be driven off His course of love for
those who love His Son. He will never abandon His people. No one
can force God to change or alter this commitment. It is simply not
possible - not today, not tomorrow, not ever! Heaven and earth will
pass away, but God's love will remain. His love will never come to
an end. It will stand the test of time without the slightest decay
or degradation. His promises are true and those who love Him and
obey His words can fully and completely rest in His everlasting
love. God's love is the most valuable, durable, personal, constant
and undefiled reality in the entire universe. Nothing compares with
Every human heart
longs to be unconditionally loved. Some have described this longing
"God-shaped hole in the heart of every human soul which
only God's love can fill."
No matter what your race,
nationality, gender, age, social status, education, or occupation
may be, please believe how precious you are to the God who created
you. He loves you so much that at this very moment He offers you
His divine love, boldly declaring His ultimate objective. No hidden
agendas; no tricks. He just wants to give you eternal life and love
you forever. That's it! All things considered the only remaining
"Will you let Him?"
Some say there are risks in the development of
any intimate relationship. But in considering an intimate
relationship with Jesus Christ, the only risk you face is having
your preconceived ideas about God changed. But if you are willing
to sincerely consider the claims of Christ as recorded in the
bible, you will discover truthful answers to those questions which
have prevented you from accepting Divine Love. You have nothing to
lose and everything to gain in this endeavor.
So open your eyes, open your ears, open your
mind and behold what manner of love is waiting for you today. Why
would anyone in their right mind say,
to such an offer?
Why would anyone ever want to?
No one is righteous - not even one. No one
is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all
have become useless. No one does good, not a single one."
"For all have sinned and fallen short of the
glory of God."
"The wages of sin is death, but the free gift
of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
"For God loved the world so much that he gave
his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes him will not
perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not
to judge the world, but to save the world through him."
"But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us
so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave
us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's
grace that you have been saved.)"
"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is
Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you
are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth
that you are saved."
"And we have come to know and believe the
love which God has for us. God is love and the one who abides in
love abides in God and God in him."
I John 5:3
"All who believe in the Son of God know in
their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don't believe
this are actually calling God a liar because they don't believe
what God has testified about his Son. And this is what God
testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his
Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son
does not have life. I have written this to you who believe in the
name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal
I John 5:10-13
