"You Can Use Hope"
"This Week's message "You Can Use Hope" uses scriptures from Jeremiah 33:14-16, Psalm 25:1-10 and 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13.
This week's scriptures begin with us looking at Jeremiah. The scripture is a prophetic text that gives the people of Israel hope although they have been dispersed because of their failure to adhere to there covenant with Yahweh. The prophet Jeremiah tells the people of a time that is coming where the One will come and fulfill the promises of God.
In the reading from 1 Thessalonians the Apostle Paul is writing to the Thessalonians to encourage the new churches there to stand fast in their faith in the word of Jesus Christ. Paul encouraged the people that the same measure of their faith would also be reflected in their love for one another.
