First Sunday in Advent 2019 - Hope (Romans 8:18-25)Tim Douglass, December 1, 2019
Part of the Advent 2019 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
This Sunday is the first Sunday in Advent. As we often do, I am going to step away from our regular sermon series until after Christmas and we will instead spent the next month talking about the coming of Jesus and what that meant at the time and means today. Advent is a time of anticipation and preparation when we should consider how His coming impacts each of us. Our advent themes this year are Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love, so this week we will be talking about Hope in relation to the birth of Christ.
|« 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 - Part 2||None||Second Sunday in Advent 2019 - Peace »|
18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. (KJV)
