I know I’m not alone in this because I see the trucks everywhere, but I like ordering things online! In most cases, I get the items I desire quicker than I would if I waited for the right time to go to the store. There are certain things that I can only get online now that I have become accustomed to it. However, I love shopping at home goods stores in person, but I’ve noticed that lately their shelves are somewhat empty; it’s probably because more people are now shopping online and having it delivered. There is a matter of trust when it comes to shopping on the internet; you have to pay for it before it comes, then you are hopeful that it’s delivered timely, especially if it’s a gift.
In the same way, we are hopeful in Jesus; the waiting seems long because the world has gone mad, and the longer he waits, the less tolerant others are becoming of our hopefulness. They don’t like our holiness reminding them of their sin. Don’t give up, even in the hope that God has a plan to redeem our country, but most of all, don’t give up on the hope of salvation in Jesus. Like online ordering, Jesus has already paid for it; we just have to wait patiently for the delivery.
For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24-25
