Hope seeks to encourage you in your walk with Jesus, specifically through prayer and devotionals.
What was your life like before you accepted Jesus and asked Him to save you?
So what can you do when you realize you have sinned?
After His resurrection, Jesus promised to send His Holy Spirit to teach and guide His followers. We who follow Him today have inherited this promise: the Holy Spirit lives within us, guiding us in God’s new life each day.
What is the worst sin you can imagine? Whatever your sin, God has proved He is willing to forgive even the worst sin as long as you repent (agree that your sin is wrong and ask forgiveness) and start following the Lord. By doing this, God can make you a new person in the new year!
Prayer is talking to God. You can call out to God in praise, confess your sins, thank Him, ask for help, and much more. Prayer is a conversation between you and God. Here’s why you should pray.
When you are learning about Jesus Christ and about becoming His follower, Christians will suggest that you read the Bible. You might hear the Bible referred to as “the Word of God,” “Scripture,” or “God’s Word.” But why did God use this book to share His story -- and why should you care?
The Bible teaches us that God loves and cares for His Creation, and that includes us. This love caused Him to offer us Salvation through Jesus Christ. God promises eternal, peaceful life with Him. Our current existence is filled with temptation, sin and evil; but God’s plan includes removing all remainders of evil in His creation. We have hope, because God is going to make everything new!
In the beginning, God created the heavens, the earth and all of the things in it. When God created people, he gave us free will. That means we can choose to walk in God’s ways or we can choose to turn from Him. Choices led to evil entering the world but, originally, God made a perfect and peaceful world.
God is good. But if we’re His creation, why are we so bad? When we try to do what’s right, our desire for sinful things often takes over. If God doesn’t like evil, why does He allow it to exist?
Being a Christian involves turning away from sin; however, we still mess up sometimes. We can learn to rely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit to avoid sin. Here are five tips for avoiding sin.
