Day 7 Advent Devotional – Living Hope
Day 7 – Living Hope
READ 1 Peter 1.3-5. Biblical hope depends on Jesus because he alone is able to give “living hope” through his death and resurrection to all who trust in him. In other words, the hope that Jesus gives is “living” because he himself is alive and offers eternal life with him. When we put our hope in him, we will not be disappointed, and we will live with him forever.
Watch the Bible Project’s video on hope. This will be used for our class tonight. They discuss the difference between hope and being an optimist. Do you agree with them?
Watch the video posted above and read 1 Peter 1.3-5.
