5/20 Hope Not Put to Shame

Rom 5:5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

You will not be misled or made a fool of for your hope in the resurrection. This is a sure hope you have put in Jesus. He is faithful.

The Holy Spirit bears witness to this by the love he has bestowed on you. We see it powerfully exhibited in you. It flows to an undeserving world through you. This love is the confidence you have to continue to bear the fruit of the Spirit even through trial.

Hope has many times left you in despair. It has not always delivered and you have been dismayed. You even wanted to give up hoping. But this is different. This is the hope in God. It is hope in God through Jesus.

Push on! Your prize is coming and while you have not yet received your reward, you are certain that it is soon. This love bears witness.
