God’s life-changing word overflows with his promises of real love, forgiveness, salvation, peace, hope, and joy for everyone who trusts in his Son, Jesus.
These six passages encourage followers of Christ to trust God for today—and for the life to come.
“Lovingly, you will lead the people you have saved.
Powerfully, you will guide them to your holy dwelling.”
Certainly, goodness and mercy will stay close to me all the days of my life,
and I will remain in the LORD’S house for days without end.
Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the LORD
will be renewed.
They will soar on wings like eagles.
They will run and won’t become weary.
They will walk and won’t grow tired.
I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will hear you. When you look for me, you will find me.
Jesus said, “I can guarantee this truth: Anyone who gave up his home, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, or fields because of me and the Good News will certainly receive a hundred times as much here in this life. They will certainly receive homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields, along with persecutions. But in the world to come they will receive eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.”
I’m convinced that God, who began this good work in you, will carry it through to completion on the day of Christ Jesus.
