We as a company and as separate individuals are LOVERS of Jesus Christ. He is our Firm Foundation and our Rock; We believe that in life there are hardships and trials that we all go through no matter how good our lives may be. Our lives constantly change and are always going somewhere. Sometimes we're in great season's of life, and sometimes horrible; Sometimes it's right in the middle, not great but also not horrible. So what grounds us? what is our anchor when life is blowing us from here to there. Well we can tell you... It is Jesus! Here's a few reasons why:
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." - Hebrews 13:8
He's consistent, He never changes.
"As for God, his way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him." - Psalm 18:30
He is perfect, true and our protector.
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” - Matthew 7:24-27
He is our Rock to place our foundation of our lives on and we are promised that we won't be moved.
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." - 1 John 4:7-11
This surely isn't the last reason but it is the greatest reason. Before we chose Him, HE chose us! He chose to love us while we were still living in our sin and God sent his Son Jesus to die for those sins as the ultimate and last sacrifice in order to reunite us with Him. He gave his love in abundance so freely to us, and all He wants in return is for us to love Him back.
This is why we do what we do, Hope Outfitters is a result of God's love overflowing from his people for the rest of his people that He so dearly loves. We love because He first loved us! From the start to now Hope Outfitters has always been held up by Him, and we're just happy to be along for the awesome ride.
