Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

April 09, 2011 (presence of hope)

presence of hope

“Understanding Bible prophecy
encourages in two unique ways.
First, it serves as a reminder
that God controls history.
When, you read from the pages of Scriptur
e how He keeps His promises,
your faith is strengthened…
By reflecting on the
fulfilled promises of the past,
you can find great comfort
as you look toward the future.
Second, understanding God's promises
for the future provides a solid foundation
to which you can anchor your hope -
a sturdy shield with which you can deflect
your doubts and fears about tomorrow…
When you reflect on God's plans
and promises for you and for the world,
you can face the future without fear.”
- John MacArthur

“The presence of hope
in the invincible sovereignty of God
drives out fear.”
- John Piper
