God had hope for the human race- that's why He sent Jesus.
God had hope for Israel, that's why he sent prophet after prophet.
Jesus had hope for Judas, that's why Jesus did not cast him away, but loved him and kept him as a disciple till the end.
Jesus has hope for us, that's why He gives us life and has mercy and forgives us after we've so miserably failed him. That's why he keeps working and refining us for He knows what beautiful masterpieces we may become and hopes that we will be willing to become.
May we also not be discouraged but continue to sow in hope in whatever God has given us to do, as well as in our labour for souls. One never knows what wonderful reward it will yield nor what persevering prayer, love, kindness, and care will do to win souls for eternity!
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
