Josh Belcher is an actor from Columbia, TN and will be featured in a drama for the 700 Club television program. He plays a young man that was involved in a gang. The character was arrested and while in jail found Jesus Christ. Last evening, the Maury County Concerned Citizens, hosts of Johnson Frierson Park, along with other groups across the city of Columbia held the Night Out Against Crime. The night was to show appreciation to law enforcement, fire departments, and other public safety service persons as well as bring attention the commitment of the local communities to deter gang involvement, violence, and other crimes. Josh acted the part of a real person and represented the hope in Jesus Christ to ultimately change hearts and communities. This message of hope was the finale at the Johnson-Frierson Park event. The key is for it to spread and transform people then communities.
The scripture says: “For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. (Romans 8:24-25) Many in the community have a hope for change and transformation to take place. There are still prayers to be made and people to share the message of Jesus. The key to spreading the Good News of the Gospel is to not give up. Keep going with the outpouring of love through community events, sharing words of encouragement to an individual, and just supporting those who are spreading it. There is a powerful God on the side of such individuals and communities who seek transformation. He will supply every need.
Obstacles and challenges are sure to come; however the believer will rely on God and His word to see him or her through the difficulties. A good word is “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”(Romans 8:37) Good words to remember and realize that God’s worker is not alone. Trust in God and keep going! Hope is to be fulfilled!
