“….which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”  Colossians 1:27b NIV

THE POWER OF HOPE - HOPE IS VITAL FOR SURVIVAL

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.   I John 5:4 NKJV

“….In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”.   1 Peter 1:3b  NIV

HOPE ISN’T JUST SOMETHING WE HAVE IT’S SOMETHING WE DO!

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick...” Proverbs 13:12 NIV

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING!

“Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness” Luke 4:1 NKJV

Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit...  Luke 4:14a NKJV

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;”  Luke 4:18 NKJV

“When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.” Matthew 14:13-14 NIV

WHAT ACTIONS OF HOPE CAN I TAKE?

1)    FIND WHAT GOD HAS EMPOWERED YOU TO DO

“So the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.” And He said, “Cast it on the ground.” So he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it.”     Exodus 4:2-3 NKJV

“And the LORD said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. Exodus 14:15-16a  NKJV

2)    PURIFY YOURSELF BECAUSE OF YOUR HOPE

“All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.”  1 John 3:3 NIV

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you,” Ephesians  1:18a NIV

3)    BOLDLY PROCLAIM YOUR HOPE IN THE GOODNESS OF GOD

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 NKJV

“But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.” Psalms 71:14 NKJV

“That the generation to come might know them, The children who would be born, That they may arise and declare them to their children, That they may set their hope in God, And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments;” Psalms 78:6-7 NKJV

“The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” Romans 8:11 NLT
