Clear Focus, Part 10: Hope (#967)

Clear Focus, Part 10: Hope (#967)
Welcome. Today we’re going to continue the series we’ve been doing since the beginning of 2019 on having a clear focus. Where we talk about what things we can focus on in God’s word. ‘Cause there are so many different topics and today we’re going to focus on hope. Hope is something positive to look forward to; and the great hope we read about in the scriptures is the hope of Jesus Christ’s return. And for him to be able to return, he has to continue to be alive, and for that to happen, he has to have been resurrected. So we’re going to take some time read about his resurrection, which is a very important focus in the scriptures — that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead. You know it is interesting, we’ve done a teaching in the past that I’m not going to go into any details on today, but a lot of people will say the most important aspect of Christianity is Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, and that is very, very important. Yet, in the book of Acts, the focus quickly moves from his death to his resurrection. Although his sacrifice and giving his blood for us, and dying on the cross is very big, what is even greater is that he was raised for the dead, and then after he was raised from the dead, of coarse, we got the gift of holy spirit.

    The Hope of the return of Jesus ChristJ is a huge thing for me right now. because of certain events that have happened to me recently the hope is bigger and more real for me now than it has ever been. I am so greatful that the person(s) who have believed on him will not perish and that the Lord will bring them with him when he returns! I am also thankful to Bruce for continuing to remind me of these truths through his teachings.
