For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4
Throughout the ‘Frontline Generation’ weekend we heard about the importance of hope. We know that true hope is only found in Jesus. So often we can turn to many other things for the sources for our hope. We might look at friends, family, boyfriends or girlfriends, things like winning the lottery or getting the perfect job. We put our hope in many things in life, yet it’s only in Jesus, can we know true hope, that will not fail or disappoint us.
However, to live a life overflowing with the hope Jesus can bring, we need to know the scriptures (the Bible). Today’s verse says that through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. To know and understand the awesome hope we can know in God, we have to learn, memorize, study and pray over the Bible to see this hope active in our lives.
