Quest for Hope
Producing True Life 3-22-16
Yesterday, in our quest for Hope from the Word of God, we could empathize with David and Jesus as they both looked for God to lift them from very hard places in life, only to feel somewhat abandoned by God. God was present but silent. When we feel that way, we must stay the course like Jesus, because God fulfilled everything that was planned for his life. He is the exalted and glorious Stairway to eternity; the Way, the Truth, and the Life to the Father (John 14:6). Today, Jesus affirms that truth through a parable when he tells his disciples to follow, remain connected to him, and be ready to serve at a moment’s notice. It’s a picture of finding and producing true life with God, but it means setting down our own desires, interests, rights, and agendas in exchange for a higher purpose.
