I love church. Especially when the message is deep. Here's some notes I took from Sunday, November 28, 2010
everyday hope is simply an optimistic attitude in an uncertain situation. Biblical hope goes beyond that-it's a God given certainty about our future...knowing that future events are in God's hands. It's not blind optimisim nor a "life will be perfect" attitude...it's simply knowing that God is with us.
Hebrews 6:17-19 "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure"
Christian hope does not neglect the bad things in life-it copes with it. It overcomes. It does not live in gloom and despair...no, it is confident in God.
Hope-it's what's up!!
