Sperantes | Hope In Christ

"If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are people most to be pitied." - 1 Cor 15:19

In this verse we are invited to always put our trust in Jesus our Lord, who once lived as a human just like us. There are many events in life that involve God in solving hard times and overcoming obstacles and difficulties. When we are helpless and in despair, actually that's the time when God is very close to us, but often we ignore. Anywhere and anytime we are in difficulties, He is waiting for us to call on His name. He waits for us to surrender to His will. But often we pretend not to hear and not to feel any spiritual callings in time of crisis. 

There are people who search for their gods and run away from the One True God. It leads themselves to drunkenness, narcotics and many other crimes. We were created by God, we are fragile and sinful.  We are mortal beings who in time will disappear without a trace just like dust on the streets. Whether we were born as rich or poor, in a city or a village, disabled or healthy, God only wants us to trust Him and involve Him fully throughout our lives. May God bless us and give us peace. Amen.
