Borrowed Hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
~Romans 15:13

Excuse me, I seem to have lost my hope. May I borrow yours? I’ve been asked for a lot things over the years, even the proverbial cup of sugar. I never recall being asked for a cup of hope. Or perhaps they were asking the question another way and I just didn’t realize it? The reality is hope seems in short supply these days. In recent months, our nation has been inundated and rocked with news of international and political division as well as racial and sexual misconduct. Dialogue has reverted to 140 character jabs at one another. Yet, we do not need to be hopeless. A great light is shining among us.

A Question of Opportunity

David asked, “Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”
~ 2 Samuel 9:1
 

Have you ever read a familiar passage and suddenly had new insight? The passage may be simple, but then God begins to show how incredible it is. That is what happened to me this week as I read this question. At first glance, David’s question seems so simple to understand. In fact, it is simple. However this question reveals many important ideas. It is just full of meaning. I want to point out two revelations that have stuck with me this week from David’s question of opportunity. David intentionally sought out opportunities to demonstrate his love for others in concrete, tangible ways. Let’s break this thought down.

What Ifs?

What ifs seem to plague our society today. As I was driving back and forth from Stockbridge to Garden City during the transition to being pastor, I began to wonder: What if the people don’t accept me? What if I don’t measure up? What if the house in Garden City doesn’t sell? What if I get stuck behind a slow moving truck and don’t make it on time? What if…? Maybe you can relate. Thinking on these what ifs can really weigh you down and become a burden. Then I remembered that I don’t have to carry that alone. We have someone who will come alongside us and not only help us with our burden but will give us guidance when we are in need. His name is Holy Spirit.
