Sermon: Hope and Faith


Given 03-Aug-19; 24 minutes

Description: (hide)

What is the worst feeling we can experience? Hopelessness far exceeds fear, loneliness, and desperation as the most horrendous of human experiences. God's Word inextricably connects hope to faith in Romans 8:24 (which proclaims that "we are saved in hope") and in Hebrews 11:1 (where "faith is the substance [Greek: foundation] of things hoped for"). As the heroes of faith listed in Hebrews 11 anciently demonstrated (or gave evidence of) their faith by their works, so God obligates His called-out ones to put their faith in action, giving evidence of the hope within them, demonstrating godly behavior rather than coarse, abrasive carnal behavior. God is the God of hope—the eternal source of hope. Consequently, God saves us by grace in hope.
