good news Verse for today
We are more than conquerors through him who loved us.For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ -- Romans 8:37-39

From The Manager’s Desk Rotting Leaves, the Thief on the Cross, and HopeDavid Andrews

When we think of a New Year, we tend to think of new life, new resolutions, and new beginnings…the new you.  We tend to not think about those rotting leaves on our lawn, the short days and long nights, and the harsh cold that can come with the season.  See…don’t let anyone ever tell you that you’re not an optimist! 

The hope that we have for a better future, ought to ring true all the more for those of us who have found the ultimate Hope of the Cross.  For Christians, whatever comes our way in our life, we win in the end.  If the decision was left up to us, we would fail miserably.  But thank you JESUS for your gift of a wonderful future with you!

In a recent church service, I was reminded of Christ coming to this “despicable earth” to save humankind.  In light of that, I suspect, our story is the story of the thief on the cross.  Christ was surrounded by criminals, yet one criminal chose Him.  That criminal was assured of imminent salvation.  And that is the hope that we have in Him.  We are all criminals in violation of God’s law, and yet if we place our faith in Him, he gives us a hope, and also fulfillment of that hope.

Have you ever met a Christian who is looking forward to “graduating?”  What a hope! My grandmother was one of those who was ready to just go be with Jesus.  At first glance, that seems somewhat alarming, at second glance, in certain cases, I believe it is a sign of a seasoned believer in Christ. 

“Lord, this year, may my hope for you, outweigh the hopes I have for this life.” 

-Dave Andrews, Station Manager
