Our Hope is Heaven

Ephesians 4:1-6

2 Corinthians 4:16-5:1

the value of hope
The Value of Hope
  • Hope reaches into the future, attaching itself onto the thing or idea that we both desire and expect to receive. 1 Cor. 15:55-57
  • Hope is not affected by externalities, and is a mental persuasion that even in the face of active persecution or intense pain, remains strong and active. 1 Cor. 15:58
  • Hope fights sorrow, discouragement, failures, frustrations, even death itself. John 14:1-3
  • Hope is the “Anchor of the Soul.” Hebrews 6:19,20
two necessary ingredients of hope
Two Necessary Ingredientsof Hope

Desire

  • If I desire a thing I can never receive, there is no hope.
  • If I expect a thing that is not desirable, there is no hope.
  • If I desire a thing and have a warm expectation to receive it, that is hope. 1 Pet 3:15 “the hope in you”.

Expectation

what hope does
What Hope Does
  • Keeps Me on Course, focused like a Homing Signal. I can see the journey’s end! It directs my vision. Titus 2:11,12
  • Lightens My Load. Makes me unaware of the hardest burden, because of the light at the end of the way! 1 John 3:3
  • Intensifies My Desires. I can achieve the goal, so hope becomes my second wind to finish the run! Heb 11:1 – It’s connected to faith.
  • Provides Confidence. 2 Pet 1:4. His promises provide balm for the weary.

yet is their pride but labor and sorrow;

for it is soon gone and we fly away.

Blessed be the God and Father

of our Lord Jesus Christ.

According to His great mercy,

He has caused us to be born again

to a living hope

through the resurrection

of Jesus Christ from the dead,

to an inheritance that is imperishable,

undefiled, and unfading,

kept in heaven for you . . .
