In whatever Translation you read it, it’s good news, comfort and help for this day.
Romans 15:4 Good News Translation (GNT) 4 Everything written in the Scriptures was written to teach us, in order that we might have hope through the patience and encouragement which the Scriptures give us. source
GOD, our Father, is ever teaching us; and why? That we through patience and encouragement from the Scriptures, will have hope! And who of us does not need hope today?
The Scriptures are not given to us to condemn us (our sin has done that) but are given so we can have hope; hope for what GOD has for us and for what we can in Him become. What can we become? People of hope. People of Faith. People of joy. People of strength. People of wisdom, integrity, worth, value — you get it. The list is endless.
Today! Hope! Found in the Scriptures! Of all places – go figure! 🙂
