What is hope? Hope is not wishful thinking. Hope is not a synonym for faith. Hope is the expectation of what is certain. Hope is rooted in faith, which is a gift from God. As we began the Advent season, Pastor Brian defined the true meaning of “hope.” The primary text for this sermon on hope is 1 Peter 1:3-9.
Peace is lost when we focus on the wrong things. In this sermon focused on Peace, Pastor Brian draws attention to Isaiah 9:6-7 and God’s establishment of TRUE peace on earth!
In Titus 3, Paul writes about Jesus’ coming to earth. This is often called the incarnation, or God in the flesh. God is love, and God took on flesh to come to earth. In other words…Love came to earth.
