John 2: 24-25 ” Jesus did not commit Himself to them…for He knew what was in man.”

Bottom line…you can’t trust people.  They’ll say one thing, but do the opposite.  They’ll promise things they can never deliver on.  They’ll declare their love and then turn around and break your heart.  Mankind is just that…humans with lots of flaws that disappoint each other daily.  And that’s difficult when we demand perfection from those who can’t achieve it….for it leads only to disillusionment.  And we need to be careful that disillusionment doesn’t cause us to become cynical, critical, and bitter.  Bottom line…you can’t trust people – but you can trust God.  You can fully trust God with your life, your future, your everything.

I Peter 3:15 ” Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”

If you died tonight, would you go to Heaven? How do you know? Two simple questions – one potentially complex answer…but it doesn’t need to be. It’s sometimes hard to verbalize that cause for our inner confidence, but if you know that Jesus died on the cross for you, your hope is rooted in Him and nothing else. Simply put… Jesus is the reason, the only reason, for the hope you have.
