Scripture Reading: Luke 24:13-32
Because of the already we can trust the not yet.
Hope (def.): the confident expectation of a better tomorrow based on the character and promises of God.
What’s something you would say you’re looking forward to in this season of life?
Who would you say is one of the most hopeful people you know?
Has there ever been a time in your life when you lost hope?
How would you describe what it means to live like JESUS IS OUR HOPE?
“Hope is one of the Theological virtues. This means that a continual looking forward to the eternal world is not (as some modern people think) a form of escapism or wishful thinking, but one of the things a Christian is meant to do. It does not mean that we are to leave the present world as it is. If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next.” – C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
