This week BSFL Students will be studying the hope we find in Jesus. Wishes can sometimes be mistaken for hope, but in Scripture, hope means so much more. Our culture offers many false solutions, but He is our victory over life’s burdens. Jesus offers us what no one else can! #JesusFTW
Many people, especially young people, tend to look ahead to certain events in life, and think that when these things come to fruition, their problems will be solved. As adults, we’ve likely seen a lot of these come and go, and we realized they have relatively little influence on our perspectives or experience. Yet we still fall into the same (although likely bigger and more expensive) traps. Here’s the truth—when we set our hopes on anything other than Jesus Himself, we’ve doomed ourselves to disappointment. If your students are going to learn to find their hope in Jesus, they need to see more mature followers doing the same.
- Look at your life. What does your lifestyle say about where your hopes lie? If it’s anything other than Jesus, take time to focus on the beauties of our Savior, and pray God would help you to be satisfied in Him alone.
