Birth Of Hope?

I saw this ad in my local newspaper a few weeks back.  While I’m glad that people like our President…and I personally pray for him each day…I am disturbed when he is referred to as “The Birth Of Hope”.  President Obama…the birth of hope?  Nope…not even close.

Hope was born over 2,00 years ago in a manger.  Hope came into the world…not to condem the world…but that through Him the world might be saved.  Hope was not merely a man…Hope was the Son of God.  Man has rejected Hope over and over again…and chose to cling to the world’s fleeting answer to hope…only to be let down time and again.  Hope is not found in a President…a political process…a Congressional bill…or a tax break from the Senate.  Hope will never be found in an election…a judicial decision…or a federal law.  Hope will not present itself in the form of a social justice issue…a governmental incentive…or a ideological initiative.  Hope is only found in the Word of God…the acceptance of God’s Son…in the total submission of our lives…to Hope.  Hope is in Heaven preparing a place for those that believe…but take heart…Hope is coming back one day!
