Finding Real Hope

Author: The Journey Online Team

In the movies, singers often proclaim, “The sun will come out tomorrow!” But when you are in the midst of a crisis, it can be hard to find hope. Often people try to help but simply say the wrong things. Instead of helping us out of our hopelessness, they add to the weight of the crisis.

Jesus Christ is different. He offers hope, real hope. He came to earth to provide genuine hope for all of us. He offers forgiveness for sin. He offers us the promise of a better life on earth and perhaps most importantly, He offers us the promise of heaven.

If you are feeling hopeless, take heart! Jesus Christ understands your situation and He can provide a way forward. Why?
God created us to be His friends. Sin interrupted that friendship and caused separation between God and man. Jesus Christ took our sins on His shoulders and endured the cross, dying for our sins. Three days later, He rose again, having defeated sin and death once and for all!

Now, He offers you a gift. Salvation. When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we gain a sense of hope that is not easily defeated. We begin again. Hope is renewed.

It all starts with a simple prayer: “Dear Jesus, I am sorry for the wrongs I have done. I feel hopeless and lost, but I know that You made a way for me to find new hope. I accept You as my Lord and Savior. Please help me start again, this time with you guiding me. In Jesus’ name, amen!”
If you prayed that prayer, you can live a new life. You can experience real joy and peace. You can live in hope again.
