Put your hope in Christ

Put your hope in Christ –  Rom 15:12-13

Vs 12 – Paul quotes Isaiah 11:1 and states that the root of Jesse will spring up someone who will rule the nations.  Jesus Christ is that person and the Gentiles will put their trust and hope in Him.  Jesus is not just the Messiah of the Jews but the Savior and Lord of all men.  We can put our trust and hope in Him.  He will give us both eternal and abundant life.

Vs 13 – Paul in this verse releases the fullness of spiritual life.  The God of hope will fill us with joy and peace as we trust in Him.  The power of the Holy Spirit flowing in and through us will create an overflow of hope in us.  We know whom we have believed in and are persuaded that He is able to keep that which have committed to Him.  Whatever you commit to the Lord He is able and will keep His promise to you.  A great reality to start your day with.
