Extended Hope, 5: Carry Hope

“…And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!” Though this was a truth that would be misinterpreted, misunderstood, and grossly miscommunicated, it would have an unmistakable impact upon the world to come. There was a world that needed hope, and Mary would carry that hope to the world. She believed in what she had, and she carried the Hope of the world, so that the world might know hope.

Jesus said that you and I are the light of the world. The purpose of that light is to give hope. In darkness, people are hopeless, confused, and feel lost in the chaos. As you are changed by the hope that you have, be strategic about carrying it others. As we travel as a team, there will be various projects, even behind the scenes, that you will be involved in. Don’t underestimate the hope that you carry to others when you step into their world to lend a helping hand.
