What does God say about hope?

Merriam-Webster defines hope as: “to cherish a desire with anticipation; to want something to happen or be true; to desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence.” What good comes from hope? What evil comes from a lack of hope? Will the answers to these questions provide the proof that the hope, which comes from God, heals us and leads us to Him? 1 Pet 1:19-21, “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith a

What does God say about war and sacrifice?

This week we commemorate the brave souls who have sacrificed much, allowing the rest of us to enjoy our blessed freedom! Thank you for your service! There are many sacrifices made during wars.
