Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/12/11

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”     (Romans 5:5)

Trials and tribulations seem to multiply. At times we are weary and our hearts grow heavy, but if we look to this world for hope, we will be disappointed for it is fallen and passing away. Let us remember Him in whom we trust for He does not disappoint but pours out His love upon us and strengthens us through His Holy Spirit. It is good to know that we are no longer citizens of this world but we have a heavenly home set aside for us if we belong to Jesus, for He is our blessed hope, our shield, and our deliverer. In Christ, and Christ alone, lies our hope. Let hope abound in your heart that Christ might be glorified.

May the love of God assure you this very day of the hope we have in Christ Jesus.
