Jesus Christ Our Hope

He Is Our Hope!

Recently while reading in 1 Timothy 1, I read the end of verse 1 and the last four words really caught my attention, “…Jesus Christ our hope.” 

What a great realization we can come to that Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour who ever lives with us, the word says He will never leave us or forsake us, He is our hope.  That means I will never again in my life be without hope! 

I wrote this in my journal, “Gary if things ever look hopeless look to Jesus, He is the author and the finisher of your faith.  That means it starts with Him and it finishes with Him.”  It’s been a learning process in my life, and at times still is, to always remember that no matter what is going on we need to turn our eyes from the situations and circumstances that are before us and look to the Jesus.  In Psalms 23 David called Him, the Lord My Shepherd.  As our shepherd it’s easy to trust His leadings in the green pastures and beside the still waters, but it’s in the difficult times we go through that we need to locate Jesus and take hope as we follow Him.
