1Yr_Home_Pastor“For You are my hope, O Lord God.” Psalm 71:5. Ever since sin brought suffering into the world, God has been saying a resounding yes to man’s search for meaning amid the seeming absurdities of life.  He reassured Adam and Eve in their helplessness and shame. He encouraged Abraham when He told him he would become the father of many nations. He cheered Israel again and again through the promise of a coming Savior.  Then after Jesus died on the cross for our sins, God again spoke in the affirmative by raising Him from the dead. Today His Holy Spirit instills hope in the heart of every suffering one who turns to Christ.  Has life become empty for you? Then voice the psalmist’s prayer: “For You are my hope, O Lord God.”
