There will always be hope for the worst through Jesus Christ.

‎”And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You will be brought down to Hades. For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I tell you that it will be more tolerable on the day of judgement for the land of Sodom than for you.” – Matt 11:23-24

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the lostness of our world – the playground of the dead and blind.

Ashamed. Broken. Apathetic. Guilty. Oblivious. Rebellious.

Jesus reminds the crowd, and city of Capernaum, in Matt. 11, that even Sodom (a city renowned for its passion for sin — leading to its destruction) would come to repentance if it had but seen the “mighty works” that Jesus had done.

How empowering is it to know that even the pinnacle of sin would have repented if it had but seen the glory of Christ!
– The Water of the thirsty
– The Healer of the hurting
– The King of the wanderer
– The Joy of the burdened
– The Hope of the desperate

No matter which way our world turns, there will always be hope for the worst through Jesus Christ.

All people, even the most rebellious, long for the joy of their heart and rest for their souls.
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” – Matt 11:28

Amplify the truth,
Austin

  1. Austin ,
    May we pray that the lost world will come to know of the hope that is found in Christ and experience His peace. No matter what we go through in life, God is right there with us. He has never left us nor forsaken us. Through Christ, we have a hope that will never perish nor fade away.

    In Christ,
    Mitchel Dubolsky
