There is Hope

"But for him who is joined to all the living there is hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion." Ecclesiastes 9:4

To write and speak of faith is probably the most natural part of the Christian's journey, especially when he is talking about his conquests. To remain motivated when things are going against him is a different story. That is why we so often see those supposedly of faith giving up on their belief.

The essence of faith is that you retain trust in the promises of God, even when all seems to be lost, after all, while there is life, there is hope. Nevertheless, this type of faith emerges from the Throne of God and only those who wholeheartedly seek Him, can be blessed with such conviction.

I also want to add that people are becoming increasingly desperate to try to resolve their problems by themselves, although Jesus has already said: "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me." John 15:4

To abide in Him means to rely on His counsel, to obey His words, and that can only occur if you seek Jesus.

Dear reader, you might be someone who holds preconceptions about the Universal Church. Perhaps you have received invitations to visit us and see for yourself, but you have refused to come.

So at the moment, you are left with no other option. Why don’t you try us? What else do you have to lose?

The doors of the UCKG are open to those of you who wish to change your life. Do not waste time anymore! The time is now. Come as you are.  While there is life, there is hope.


God bless you all
