Sermons on Hope

Stories of Hope: Not About Circumstance

Y’all, our hope should have NOTHING to do with our circumstance.  Rather, our hope should have EVERYTHING to do with our trust in God and God’s assurance that God is at work through us, that God will continue to be at work through us, that God will fill these seats again if we trust and listen for what God calls us to do individually and collectively.

“Merry Christmas” NOY “Happy Holidays”

Y’all, it’s time for us, God’s people, to dream some dreams. It’s time for us to see some visions. It’s time for us to move from an existence that can best be described using words like “darkness” and “despair” to an existence that can best be described using words like “bright” and “hopeful” and “amazing” and “new”. It’s time to start realizing that when we listen to and follow God’s will, anything, absolutely ANYTHING, is possible…even things beyond our wildest imagination.

A Party of Hope

Y’all, a big, HUGE reason that we can experience the party called faith that is the Kingdom of God…a big, HUGE reason we can experience ANYTHING at all as a party after we experience pain and loss and suffering is exactly because there is hope in God.

Hope

Folks, we live in a time in which people are searching for hope. They can experience philosophical and political disagreements anywhere they go in our society. They can experience people selfishly demanding their own way anywhere else in society. They can experience stingy, exclusionary behavior anywhere else they go in society.
What they can’t get anywhere else, what they should be getting HERE, what they will flock here to receive, is the gospel of hope, the gospel of Jesus Christ, that reminds them that what they do MATTERS in the big picture.
