Sermon Title: Hope, part two
Worship service date: July 8, 2018
Interim Pastor Thomas Hiltsley
Primary Bible verses:
1st Peter 1:3-9
Christian Hope is…
- an expectation for the future, particularly when Jesus Christ shall come again for the Church and in turn set up His eternal kingdom.
- a present trust and confidence in God, a trust which endures with confidence in the God who knows the end from the beginning and rules over all. In this sense HOPE is used in the New Testament with words like “steadfastness”, “without wavering”, and “fixed”.
- a patient waiting on God. It is the source of our boasting.
