This Sunday John used parts of the story Abraham from Genesis 12-17 to talk about what hope looks like. Hope comes from a relational trust in the person of Jesus, and looks like obedience to His words. Hope also comes from hearing God speak and waiting on the LORD. Hope also is something to fight for as we seek to follow Jesus. (Psalm 62:5-6, 1 Corinthians 13:7, 1 Peter 1:13).
