“What else do you have if you don’t have hope?” * It’s scary to think what we would have if our true hope, Jesus, hadn’t entered the picture. We probably wouldn’t have this opportunity, among many… For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, (Eph. 2:14 NKJV).

Through Christ, you can and should “live [your] life out loud,” * no one here on earth needs to give you the permission to, or need to remind us that we can. Truly, the very fact that our real hope in this life isn’t dependent on the government or any elected official should alone cause us to live and speak joy…at full volume.

We all have hope, every one of us, in every forgotten corner of the globe—it’s found in the name Jesus, and He is very near to you, even right now.
