Jesus, The Light of the World, The Hope of Nations

Thank you for visiting our site and reading our articles. We at Hamlin New Testament Church have a passion to share the goodness of God with others! Some people are struggling with basic questions like:

    • Does God really love me? 
    • Could He really forgive me after all that I’ve done? 
    • Does He see my struggles? 
    • How do I live my life with Him? 

Perhaps you have your own specific questions. There are so many passages in the Bible that explain the depth of God’s love for you, His endless mercy and His inexhaustible grace . . . mercy and grace enough to forgive you and bless you. Jesus truly wants to resolve the breach that our choices, our sins have created between us and Him. God spoke through a man named Jeremiah . . . his nation had made horrible choices, many of his friends (some of whom were very religious) had chosen wrong ways to deal with their issues, and even Jeremiah was not perfect! Their choices led to many problems, including being taken from their homeland. Here’s what God told Jeremiah to tell his people:

“I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.”   Jeremiah 29:11-14

The truth is that we have all done things that have brought trouble into our lives, things that God never wanted us to do! Our hope for salvation is only in Jesus, our hope as a nation is only in Him and our hope for real life is only in Him! God hates sin but His thoughts towards those who are seeking Him and those who love Him are thoughts of good! Today can be your day for redemption, your day of peace, the beginning of your future and hope!
