This past Easter Sunday I preached a message called “The Resurrection of Hope.”

In this sermon I talked about the importance and power maintaining an attitude of hope. We know that without faith it is impossible to please God (see Hebrews 11:6); and I believe that without hope it is impossible to have faith. Hope is the precursor to faith, for “faith is the substance of things hoped for” (Hebrews 11:1).

One of the ways that we can be robbed of our hope is when we don’t respond well to disappointments. Proverbs 13:12 says that “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” Can you imagine the hopelessness the disciples must have felt when Jesus was crucified? They had put all of their hope in Jesus, and now He was seemingly gone.

In this message I outlined how we can overcome disappointments and maintain a posture of hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

    I was lead here just in time. I cannot express how much this sermon spoke to me. I had really started believing that God had turned his back on me. I believed that all that I had turned over to him was falling on deaf ears. I have also been praying about a home and it just keeps seeming to not happen. I truly do not want to leave this area, close to my work and it is so peaceful. I have prayed for healing, that I have felt was denied me. I have felt lost for a few weeks now. Thank you so much. I needed this, more than anyone could know.
