Get Involved - World Aids Day
In the past decade, the number of those infected with HIV or AIDS has doubled to more than 40 million. While it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the problem, we must understand that the worldwide tolls of these diseases can be greatly reduced. The first steps are to educate ourselves, educate others, prevent further infection, and care for a young generation of affected children.
What Everyone Should Know
HIV and AIDS are a global pandemic. HIV has infected people in every country on earth and devastated entire nations. The numbers are enormous, but these numbers represent people. There are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, children, grandparents, and babies who have been infected with HIV and have died from AIDS.
Education is the first step in preventing, treating, and stopping the spread of HIV and the progression to AIDS.
MY BELOVED FRIENDS, biblical hope is a reality and not a feeling. Biblical hope carries no doubt. Biblical hope is a sure foundation upon which we base our lives, believing that God always keeps His promises. Hope or confident assurance can be ours when we trust the words, “He who believes on Me has everlasting life” (John 6:47, NKJV). Accepting that gift of eternal life means our hope is no longer filled with doubt, but rather has at its sure foundation the whole of God’s Word, the entirety of God’s character, and the finished work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We should always lean to Jesus!
