We Have Hope In Christ – August 1, 2016
The verse I have chosen today is 2 Corinthians 1:9, “Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 10He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and He will deliver us again. On Him we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us.”
Paul wrote his second letter to the Corinthian church around 56 AD. He wrote the letter to the church to address old issues, but it also dealt with new ones. Throughout Paul’s missionary journey, he faced many challenges and even faced death. Paul had a first-hand look at what it meant to suffer. Many times as human beings we go into our trials with a mindset of “I” can fix this, but we must understand as believers we can’t go into any situation without God because through Him and Him alone, we will find victory. I want to encourage you today, when you find yourself facing challenges rely on and put your hope in our God who raises the dead.
Take care and have a blessed day!
