Hope: a short

There is hope for this world.
There is hope for mankind.
There is hope for you.

Or Jesus wouldn’t have come.

Are you crazy enough, like an old poetic prophet, to believe that?

There is hope in the midst of weighty despair.
There is hope in the midst of deep gloom.
There is hope in the dark, long valley.
There is hope for the shackled in sin.
There is hope for the bound and lame.
There is hope for the suffocation of poverty.
There is hope for dehumanizing hatred.
There is hope for the ravages of violence.
There is hope for ear and eye turning indifference.
There is hope- even after you watch the news.

Or Jesus wouldn’t have come.

Are you crazy enough, like an old poetic prophet, to believe that?

There is hope in the restoration of salvation.
There is hope in a new way of living.
There is the great hope of the return of the King; resurrection, all things made new.

Or Jesus wouldn’t have come.

Are you crazy enough, like an old poetic prophet, the believe that?

So, there is hope for me.
There is hope for you.
There is hope for all people.
There is hope for a new future.

You haven’t given up, have you?
