Unleashing Hope  \\  Jun 21, 2014

You’ve probably heard the saying, “We read the end of the book, and we win!” Part of the process of “playing a great defense” is embracing the spiritual truth that, because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, Christians win! We can live with HOPE and have victory over discouragement, anxiety and fear. And because we know that no matter what life “dishes out”- trials, challenges, rough times- we’re victorious, then we can live with confidence! Pastor Ray uses the book of Revelation to fold that into a cool story in today’s Devo. Remember to share this with a friend who needs hope today!
