HOPE is essential for life.
Many people have become bitter towards life because of unfortunate events or circumstances in which they find themselves living. Some quit, others end their life. The only difference between those who ‘throw in the towel’ and quit and those who use the circumstance to rebuild and keep going is found in one word – HOPE!
Dr. John Maxwell offers this profound acronym:
H – olding
O – N
P – raying
E – xpectantly
This week we’re beginning our annual sermon series – Stories of HOPE! Sometimes all you have is HOPE.
Dr. G. Campbell Morgan once told of a man whose shop had been burned during the disastrous Chicago fire of 1871. The man arrived at the ruins the next morning carrying a table. He set the table amid the charred debris, and above it placed an optimistic sign: “Everything lost except wife, children, and hope. Business will resume as usual tomorrow morning.”
If you’ve lost HOPE, you’ve lost everything. Join on Sunday as we talk about an Eternal Living HOPE that is available to everyone!
