We have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. (1 Timothy 4:10 NRSV)

Every once in a while I hear someone say something like, "The worse thing that could possibly happen just happened." What happened? Did your best friend die? Did something horrible happen to someone in your family. Did you discover that you have an inoperable tumor? What is the worst thing that could happen to you? You hear someone say, "If that happened to me, I would just die."

It's just an expression, but sometimes we mean it. But you don't die. You step back for a moment and clear your head and try to put it into perspective. Some people are defeated in life by an attitude problem. They are finished before they ever start. They give up and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, just because of their mental set.

Jesus has already died for us. We have the hope of eternal salvation!


Dear God, yes, sometimes life can be difficult, but, with Jesus in my heart, help me to live with the hope of salvation. In Jesus' name, Amen.
