And hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
Before we knew God’s love, we had no hope. Then we learned about how much He was willing to do for us, the gifts already here in our lives, even coming in human form to die for us – and we saw the proof of His love.
How can we ever return that love? What can we do for God? There is nothing we can give God other than our thanks and praise, but we can show our love for Him by our obedience to His will and sharing the love we have received with all the world. God wants us to be part of His kingdom work and to let others see His love through how we treat them.
Let God know you love Him and His children through your prayers and your outreach. Tell everyone the Good News, spread His word everywhere and let the world know how much God loves us all!
Loving Lord, we cannot save ourselves; our only hope is in You. Help us to be faithful followers of Jesus, to share the love You send through Him to all our brothers and sisters here. May our work in Your name bring the world to You. Amen.
