Surprised by Hope - Session 6

Resurrection. Heaven. Jesus’s Second Coming. Salvation. They are all intricately connected to the Body of Christ: His Church. And his church has a commission to live out.

Check out this week’s video, Hope of the Church:

Surprised by Hope - Session 5

When you think of salvation, do you think of being saved from something bad (Hell)? Or maybe you think about being saved to something good (Heaven). But do you think in terms of being saved for something?

Salvation is more than just rescue. It is closely tied to judgement. Judgment is understood best as justice. Putting things in right order. We have been saved to be God’s justice through Christ according to 2 Corinthians 5:17-21. Spend some time wrapping your head around that idea!

Here is this week’s video: Hope of Salvation.

Suprised by Hope - Session 4

This week we tackle the second coming of Jesus.

Here’s the video from class. As you determine if you agree or disagree, always seek scripture, pray, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide.
