Today's Verse : Romans 5:5


May 5, 2012

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his
love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
-- Romans 5:5

The source of our hope is not just in Jesus' prior work on the
Cross and in the empty tomb. It isn't dependent just on our own
will-power and commitment to hang on to hope. No, God made sure the
fire of hope could never run out of fuel in our hearts. He did this
by filling us with his Holy Spirit and pouring his love into our
hearts. That same Spirit will help raise us up and give us life
when Jesus returns (cf. Romans 8:11).

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you so much for the gift of your
Holy Spirit who keeps my hope alive and fills me with a sense of
your loving presence. May my life today, and everyday, display my
confidence in your love by sharing your kindness with others. In
Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
