We often think of obedience as the “down side” of being a Christian–something that’s hard and vaguely unpleasant to think about. But obedience is often God’s way of releasing hope in our lives. This sermon shows how hope arose when God’s people simply did what He asked. Bottom line: Obedience is our friend!
We’re in the middle of a series of messages on “Hope”, specifically, how we receive hope. Hope realized is an incredible joy, but there is a process to receive hope. This week we confirm three important requirements for receiving hope but add an important twist! All that is found in the story of a paraplegic.
Hope is not a wish, but instead, a solid, reliable expectation! There are keys to unlocking hope that can be found in a great miracle story of the Bible. In it, a blind man receives sight and his life is forever changed. What happened to him can happen to you, whether you can physically see or not! *Sermon notes are posted, but the sermon recording is unavailable! Our apologies!*
We’re beginning a series on hope, and what better day to begin than Easter! We’ll take a look at the way most of us think of hope, and then we’ll look at better way the Bible defines it. We’ll also see how secure our hopes for eternal life are when they are connected to Jesus Christ.
