I. Introduction:

A. What or who do you have your hope in (Psalms 33:13-22)?

  1. You’re not trusting in some person for your hope, are you (Psalms 118:8-9, Psalms 146:3, and Jeremiah 17:5-7)?
  2. The Psalmist, without the hope we have, nailed it (Psalms 71:5).
B. Real hope even puts death in a certain perspective (Philippians 1:21-24).
  1. Hope is enduring (I Corinthians 13:8-13).
  2. Hope is motivating (Psalms 78:1-7) and is called our anchor (Hebrews 6:18-20).

II. Body: Among “The Ones”, We Have One Hope (Ephesians 4:1-6)

A. In a time of Judah’s punishment for their transgressions, we see how hopelessness can be replaced with hope (Lamentations 3:1-26).
  1. Bad situations cause hopelessness (Acts 27:13-20).
  2. Faith in God’s promises is the fuel for hope even under unspeakably difficult situations (Romans 4:13-22).
  3. Do you have unwavering faith in the rightly understood promises of God (I Corinthians 15:58 and Colossians 1:21-23)?
B. Our hope is not in this world (Colossians 1:5, Titus 1:1-3, Titus 2:11-14, and Titus 3:7).
  1. Our hope lays wait for us in the resurrection (I Peter 1:3-9).
  2. Thankfully, we are not like those who have no hope (I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11).
  3. Without the hope of a future resurrection, hope would not even be in the person of Christ (I Corinthians 15:1-23 and I Peter 1:18-21).
C. Don’t fall for misguided hope (Jeremiah 8:1-15).
  1. Don’t believe false messengers that get your hopes up in things that are not true (Jeremiah 23:13-22 and II Peter 2:17-19).
  2. Put your hope and trust in the right place (Psalms 20:5-9).

III. Conclusion: Remember, among other things, we are saved by proper hope (Romans 8:24-25).
