Hope Today

in God's Love Pain/Suffering

Here's David Chadwick with today's Bible Minute.

If you feel discouraged today, take the posture that Job took ultimately after he suffered a lot. He made this statement. He said, "I know that my redeemer lives" (Job 19:25).

Christians, you need to know that your redeemer lives. Jesus Christ not only came to this earth and died on the cross, He was raised from the dead to prove to us that God's love is stronger than our sin. I've always joked with my people at the church I pastor; you just can't keep a good God down. God has to be raised from the dead to prove that love conquers sin.

So in your discouragement today say to yourself like Job, I know, I am absolutely certain, that my redeemer, Jesus, lives. Because that's the proof I have that love conquers sin and therefore, I can have hope today.
