Big Questions: What Hope do you have? Where Should your Hope be Placed?

Schools have closed. Churches had to shut their doors to the public. Citizens stuck in their homes. COVID-19 has disrupted your daily livelihoods. When you are outside, you are instructed to wear masks. You are suppose to wear a mask because it helps combat COVID-19 pandemic. Again, COVID-19 has disrupted your daily livelihoods. This raises two questions, “What hope do we have? and Where should your hope be placed?”

This outbreak should remind someone of the movie ‘Tangled’. This Evil Witch snatched Tangled out from the hands of the Royals and stuck her inside a tower. Tangled had to lower her hair for the Evil witch to come to her humble abode. When the Evil Witch went to town, Tangled was optimistic and sang this line, “When will my life begin?” She longed to see the Lights that occur every year on her birthday. She did not like to be confined to the tower and longed for Freedom. Your life is similar to Tangled.

Due to the policies of your elected officials, You are confined to our houses and are only allowed to go to the grocery stores and other essential business. You feel trapped and confined, but remember this is temporary and you will feel freedom soon. Your struggles are momentary and light. You should feel blessed that Churches are using innovative means to proclaiming hope to the American population. We should set our eyes on Jesus Christ, who is the provider of hope.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (NIV) states, “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not one what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

One thing that is unseen is Hope. You can rest your hope on is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is our Comfort. We can rest in His glorious presence. This leads to another powerful Truth.

2 Corinthians 1:3-7 states, “Praise be to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.”

This is a powerful truth. We can rest in God because He comforts us when we are in distressed. So, during this dreadful time of being ‘Sheltered in Place’, never lose hope in Jesus Christ, who is the provider of Comfort. Although the Coronavirus has disrupted your lives, you can remain hopeful in Jesus Christ.
