Jesus, the Eternal Certainty that Does Not Frustrate Us

Jesus is the Eternal Certainty that does not frustrate those who place their Hope in Him; and much more than that: their Trust. As we read in the Book of Psalms 2:12, “Blessed are all who take refuge in Him [the Son of God].”

Tela: Heinrich Hofmann (1824-1911)
