Jesus Is Our Hope

Psalm 23:5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

            Just thinking of sitting down with our enemy at a table is scary.  However, knowing that our Lord Jesus is preparing the table gives us hope beyond our wildest dreams.

1 Peter 1:3-5  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  (4)  To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,  (5)  Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Through “his abundant mercy,” we derive our “lively hope.”  This “lively hope” is an enduring “hope,” the “inheritance” of eternal life, “incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away.”  Within this “abundant mercy,” we have no fear of sitting down in the “presence of mine enemies.”  Jesus gives us hope as His Father, our God has anointed us with His Mercy, His Love, and His Blessings.  Our “cup runneth over.”
            “Get” Jesus, who is our Hope, our Salvation, and receive The Everlasting Life He has promised us.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Just believe.  He will accept you eternally.
