Evening Celebration sermon: How Can I Hope? The Scriptures! (Romans 15:1-13)

Hope is desperately needed as we face such uncertain times – our jobs, our churches and our communities have been massively impacted by the pandemic and lockdown. But is there hope? And are there any certain or secure anchors for Christian hope? In the book of Romans Paul writes:

In Romans 15:4, Paul writes: “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragements they provide we might have hope.”

How might we begin to exercise the muscle of hope through the endurance taught and encouragement imparted through the Scriptures? We’re going to explore that question together through digging into Romans 15:1-13, that we might grow in Christian hope, joy and peace.
