How To Share Hope

There is a great deal of hopelessness around today. It could be said that society is as hopeless as it’s ever been. You may have looked to finances, acquiring possessions, or other things for hope. You might have tried to get hope from being a part of a religion that tells you to do this, or do that, and to work your way to God. Eventually, all of these false hopes fall short, and you can find yourself more hopeless than you were before. You may even feel hopeless yourself. That things are never going to get better, and there’s no point in going on.. But there is hope. A hope that is true. A hope that is secure. A hope that no matter what you are going through in your life, you can cling to this hope as your anchor. That hope is in Jesus Christ. As a follower of Jesus Christ, your hope is secure that by faith in Him you have a home in heaven. There is a great deal of hopelessness around today.

And it is by this hope in Christ that we rep our faith by knowing how to share hope with others. That by faith in Him, Jesus will guide you and provide for you as you focus on living for Him.

From Series: "Rep Your Faith"

Therefore, we are Christ’s representatives, and through us, God is calling you. We beg you on behalf of Christ to become reunited with God. – 2 Corinthians 5:20 GW Perhaps now, more so than ever before, our world is looking for answers to the daily confusion that surrounds us. The news, social media, and the stock market all confirm what the Bible teaches concerning the lack of stability in this life. Like He has throughout all of history, God has chosen to partner with His people to bring clarity to the confusion, by showing the world who God truly is. God’s Word tells us that “we are Christ’s representatives,” The best contribution you can make in our problematic world is to represent the faith that God has given you. If you’re not sure of your faith, then there is no better time than now to come and see that God has a path, a plan, and a purpose for you. No matter what has happened in your life, no matter how bad things have been, or how bad things are now; God is ready to, and wants to, restore you. Come and find out the tangible ways to best represent your faith in your life. There is no greater truth than realizing that God has redeemed you to be His representative to those that are lost and suffering. God has restored you to Rep Your Faith.
