Bible Verse Of The Month - May

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”   Romans 15: 13

When people use the word ‘hope’ these days, it’s often in a rather fuzzy and wistful way - yearning for something we don’t really think will happen. Like when I say, “I hope I’ll have a warm sunny summer holiday by the sea this year” - (but I don’t actually believe that I will)! 

By contrast, Biblical hope is sure and certain. It is powerful and life-changing because it comes from the divine energy of God’s Spirit, the same power that raised Christ from the dead. This kind of hope is in desperately short supply in our hurting and hopeless world. So as we journey through May towards Pentecost (Sunday 23rd), shall we make this our motivational phrase and daily prayer:

God of real hope, we trust in You; by the power of Your Holy Spirit may we overflow with Christ-centred hope that blesses the world around us.

- The Revd Mary Barr.
