July 31 – Share Your Hope

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15)

Hope is incredibly powerful.  It transforms lives.

In Greek mythology, Hope was the final thing in Pandora’s box.  After all of the plagues and calamities flew out of the box, she slammed the lid shut on the final item – hope.  In this way, mankind would be punished for her curiosity.  But, it was opened again and hope always showed up when humanity could no longer take the plagues and calamities.  It didn’t show up first, it showed up when they could take no more.

So humanity lived on.  No matter what came, hope showed up and people continued to live.

We have great reason to hope.  Our hope is a living hope.  Our hope is stored in heaven. Our hope is based on the foundation of the Creator.

People need to hear about our hope.

Plagues and calamities surround us every day.  There are people who feel as if they have no more hope left because of the number of attacks they face.

We can bring hope.  We can tell of the living hope that we know.

Share your hope.
