Thought for the Day by Phil Moon (Vicar)
Thought for the day for Monday 16th
A recent survey has shown that the two most felt needs during lockdown II are hopelessness and loneliness. Maybe you can identify with these; but we of all people, as Christian people, have great answers to hopelessness and loneliness.
Today, a thought about hopelessness. Ephesians 212 has the most crushingly awful description of those without Jesus: “…without hope and without God in the world.” But we are different, because as God’s people, God’s very own people, we can echo one of the ’30 sayings of the wise’ in Proverbs 2318 “There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” Why not read that again? Slowly. And then again. Even more slowly. And now turn it into a prayer of thanksgiving, that however we’re feeling today, whatever today holds, however much we’re dreading something that’s coming up, this is still true: “There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.”
Thank you, Lord Jesus that this is true. It will always be true. It is true today. We praise your name, now. And for evermore. Amen.
