Fresh Hope – 11th December 2018

The postage stamp seems to be almost a thing of the past, but there’s still nothing quite like receiving a Christmas card that has a specially designed Christmas stamp stuck to its top right hand corner.

Since 1966, over 17 billion Christmas stamps have been sold.

The value of a stamp seems quite insignificant in its value, size and weight and yet without it your parcels, letters and cards wouldn’t get very far.

Its value therefore is in its ability to stick to things for the duration of its journey; once your item has arrived then the humble stamp has done its job.

To many people, God has no relevance and yet He is the most reliable being in the universe; He is not only willing to love you unconditionally, but He is willing to stick with you and never let you go.

No matter what journey you’re on today and no matter how long and difficult it may be, you can rest assured that God will stick to you, so that you will make it right to the end.

His promise throughout the Bible is that He will ‘never leave you or forsake you’, but it doesn’t get much better than the promise below…

Jude 1:24-25 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

What an amazing promise to see you through this life and into His presence in the next…

– He will keep you from falling…
– He will present you without fault before God.
– He will present you to God with great joy.

All this is true for those who surrender their lives to Jesus.

Ask Jesus today to take the driving seat of your life. Give Him full control…you’ll be amazed at where He will lead you this Christmastime.
