A Resilient Hope

December 18, 2022

The biblical word “hope” means “certainty.” It doesn’t mean possibly or probably, but surely. It is a certainty based not on a feeling, nor an optimistic intuition, but it is based on God's Word. Having biblical hope means having a sound assurance in your heart that because of what God has promised, His plan for you will come to fruition and will not disappoint. With that in mind, in this message, I want to show you three things you can put your hope in knowing the seed of that hope will bear fruit and you'll be glad that it did.

All I Want for Christmas

As we dive into this Christmas series, I am going to give you my Christmas list and I guarantee you it is going to surprise you. But I believe that after this series is over, you might agree with me that this ought to be on everyone’s Christmas list. In fact, if every person on this planet made this their Christmas list and God gave them what they asked for our world would never be the same. You see, these three gifts that are on my list, money can’t buy, and yes they will always satisfy everybody who receives them. You will never want to take them back or exchange them for anything else. They last forever – won’t gather dust, never go out of style, never outgrow them and you will be forever thankful that you have them.

Bible Reference

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people,
training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,
waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
