Just a few days ago, our friend Becca shared a post titled “How Is A World Without God?“ In it, she shares a testimony of a very special young man in the Merci’ de Dieu (“Thanks to God”) Village, Richard Chéry. Please take a moment to read it.
This holiday season, whether we encounter joy or sorrow, may the truth of Becca and Richard’s message ring true: life with God is a life of hope and expectancy.
May His hope fill our hearts through Christ. Merry Christmas!
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:1-8
