Welcome to Hope Talk
Merry Christmas! Happy Jesus’ Birthday! Rejoice and sing Praise to the King of Kings as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior of the World, and Reigning Lord of All. God made in flesh. God with us. Have a great day of joy, family, and worship.
I am thankful for family today, not just our immediate family, but our eternal and local family at Hope. One of the most important lessons that the parents need to teach and mentor in their time of impact and influence of the family is the value of God given relationships. God has brought all of us into a family according to His perfect and profound will for the glory of His Name and Glory. You have the right family that is needed for you to be the most Christlike believer which is God’s design and desire for you. Your parents, siblings, believer’s family is all determined by the All Powerful and Sovereign Hand of God. Each of you are to learn and grow specifically according to His provision in relationships molded by the Holy Spirit and modeled by the Son of God. His mother and father were important to the Sovereign King while on earth, His friends, His disciples, His family were all receptors of His continual grace and mercy. He gave up freedom and deserved worship to love the ones His Father gave to Him. John 17:9-12 says, I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. Our family is growing and by God’s design. Let us love one another, encourage one another, support one another so that our Father is pleased and will bring His Spirit among us.
I have talked with the Church of Jesus Christ Bethesda (Ukrainian church) and we would like to plan a dinner together in the future that will celebrate the Glory of our God. It will be in a few months from now so look forward to it.
