Hope gives us reason to hang on. Hope deferred make us heart sick. Love fills the gap of hope deferred! Why did the people hang onto Jesus’ every word? Why do we hang onto His word? His truth proclaims how valuable we are to Him. His truth tears down “man-made” religion that lends to consumerism in the world system. Time to stop consuming and start experiencing God’s love. – Teresa
Luke 19: 45-47 ( ESV)
45 And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, 46 saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of robbers.”
47 And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, 48 but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words.
