Finding Hope Today
We have a future hope of glory, but we can also experience hope today because of the resurrection of Jesus.

April 10, 2022 • Randy Hageman • Romans 1:21–25, 2 Corinthians 4:16–18, Luke 14:7–11, Hebrews 11:32–35, 1 Corinthians 1:26–31
Palm Sunday stands out as a day in which the people praising Jesus didn’t really understand who he was or what he was about. But perhaps this actually shows us a bigger pattern that runs throughout the Bible of a subversive hope that never comes about the way people ordinarily expect. As we’ll explore today, perhaps God’s ways really aren’t our ways, and yet, His ways are always the right ways!

The sin that separated us from God and His glory in Genesis 3 continues to haunt us and hurt us. We need hope to face all this world lays before us, and the resurrection of Christ begins to allow us to experience some of God’s glory, here and now, to give us a hint of what heaven will be like. Through the tabernacle and temple, God was always pointing His people to this glorious hope – a hope that we now can experience in Jesus himself.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ promises us “a living hope” that nothing in this world can take away from us. It ushers in the beginning of the kingdom of God, and our faith transfers us into this kingdom. And though this future kingdom has not yet fully come, it has begun, in Christ and his resurrection, and as we’ll see today, it offers us hope, profound certainty, that impacts the way we live our lives today!

Human beings have always experienced some degree of anxiety, but since the turn of the century, and especially in the last three years, our levels of anxiety have skyrocketed. And rising anxiety often leads to loss of hope. Are we just stuck with this, or does Jesus Christ, particularly through his death and resurrection, offer us significant and real grounds for hope that can transform how we live today? Join us as we explore anxiety and hope!
