Scripture(s): Exodus 20:8-11 (NLT)
Everyone needs hope. Without it we tend to fade away and give up. In a world with so many disappointments, injustice, fear, loss and pain we more than ever need to be convinced there is still hope. In this series, Hope Rising, will awaken the hope God has for us in Christ, leaving you confident and comfort that the future is in God’s hands. There’s no better time to kick of this series than Easter Sunday when it seemed all was lost, in Jesus we see Hope Rising. What do you do when life takes twists and turns and goes to places you don’t want to go or ends up where you never thought it would be? There is something intoxicating about speed. We love to go fast. From the earliest days, “Daddy, go faster!” To the early 20s of “putting the pedal to the metal” zooming down the road. Often our lives do exactly the same as we go fast faster, and fastest.
In week #3, we will look at how in order to have hope rising we need to discover why we go so fast heading for a crash in life.
