When there’s bad news, our hope is the good news of Jesus

God is our refuge and our strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble.
Psalm 46:1 (HCSB)
Kings and kingdoms all pass away—
Nothing on earth endures. . .
But the love of God who sent His Son
Is forever and ever yours!
Helen Steiner Rice
“And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:5 (NASB)
As believers, if our hearts are not filled with love it is our own fault, because every true believer possesses the Holy Spirit. “If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him” (Rom. 8:9). Since the Spirit abides in our bosom and the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit, if we are willing to yield our hearts to God to be filled with His love, He will grant that request. That is the spiritual birthright as well as the solemn duty of every believer.
