Faith and Hope Triumphs!

Romans Chapter 5:1-11

Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by FAITH, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Also through Him, we have obtained access by FAITH into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the HOPE of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. This HOPE does not disappoint, because God's love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

For while we were still helpless, at the appointed moment, Christ died for the ungodly. For rarely will someone die for a just person-though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die. But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us! Much more then, since we have now been declared righteous by His blood, we will be saved through Him from wrath. For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, then how much more, having been reconciled, will we be saved by His life! And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Through whom we have now received reconciliation.

With todays on going election you hear political leaders preaching on how they will bring CHANGE and HOPE to our nation. But like many politicians tend to be shady one how they will bring CHANGE and HOPE to the people of our nation. But like most politicians it will be nothing more than broken promises. Christ is the only one who can bring real hope and change in our lives. Christ died for us, the ungodly as the verse above in Romans states. With this we were given access by Faith into grace. We should rejoice in the HOPE of the Glory of God! While we were dead to sin Christ gave us real HOPE! Christ died for us to have real CHANGE and HOPE in his Glory and that is not some empty promise like some politicians running for president preach on in the message of HOPE and CHANGE. Once America as a whole discovers this we will have true HOPE in CHANGE . I pray that Christ will change your life and give your real hope in his Glory today.
