"May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you." Psalm 25:21 NLT

Rest on God's promises; stand behind yours.

The Question Of Eternity

The Bible doesn't promise believers a life free of pain, difficulty, or loss. Christians are not exempt from struggle, heartache, or disappointment.

The Bible does promise those who believe in Christ that they will have a Companion on the journey to help, encourage, and strengthen them. He is the One who has promised: "I will never leave you nor forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5). To be able to have this confidence is to live a life that is an exclamation point in a world of question marks. He is the One who is our Sanctuary. If you know Christ, let Him build the hope of His presence into your life.

If you have not yet trusted Christ, you know that this world is a place of difficulty and struggle. But there's no reason for you to face it alone. Jesus Christ came into the world to restore our broken relationship with God and to give us lives of purpose and meaning. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

When you enter into this new relationship with Christ, you will find that He really is the help and hope you need for life---and for eternity.
