Sermon: Hope Lives » Paul's Ponderings
On Easter Sunday I focused on the hope that we have as Christians. Hope is crucial to life because we are faced with trials, tribulations, and tragedies that rob us of life. In 1 Peter 1:3-5 the Apostle Peter described this hope as a “living hope.” It is living because it brings us life and it grows and matures.
This living hope is rooted in history (the resurrection of Jesus), is made of eternal things, and is protected for us by God. It is a hope that can’t be taken away from us and will sustain us through all that life throws at us.
Big Idea: Easter declares that hope lives!
Challenge: Repent of your dead hopes: 1) Ask God to reveal the hopes you holding on to, 2) Declare that your supreme hope is in Jesus.
Listen: Hope Lives
