Living (In) Hope

Given on May 17, 2020 by Brett Helvie
Scripture: 1 Peter 1:3-9
Sermon Series: Confident Christianity

What are some of the things that our culture is looking to for hope in the midst of this Covid19 pandemic? How reliable are those hopes?

It has been said that we can live for weeks without food, days without water but only minutes without hope. What do you think of this statement? Where are you placing your hopes today? In what sense should our hope as Christians be different from the hopes of those who don’t follow Jesus?

According to Peter, what is the basis of the security of our “living hope”? What is our responsibility as week walk through the tests and trials of life?

Peter indicates that we can be simultaneously rejoicing with inexpressible joy AND grieving in. the midst of a difficult trial. How is this possible?
