Living in hope in turbulent times 3

Speakers: Ps. Mike Kirkpatrick

Bible reading: Romans 5: 1-11

Title: How can you be so sure?

  • Through faith in the bloodshed by Christ, you are at peace with God; so you now have access to God and you have the concrete hope that you will share the glory of God
  • Your present sufferings cannot dash that hope. Because God is using our present sufferings to draw us much, much closer to himself. And isn’t that the cause of rejoicing?
  • And we know that God loves us tremendously because He has demonstrated his love for us at the Cross, while we were still sinners.
  • And since God has demonstrated His great love for us while we are living, how much more will he show his love for us when we die? So much more. That’s our solid hope of glory.
