1 Corinthians 15:12-19–I did a Google search for quotes about hope. After a few minutes of scrolling through its algorithm-curated the results, I realized that none of the quotes I saw came from the Bible’s numerous passages about hope. Hope occupies a vital place in one’s life, but the hope offered by the world possesses a greeting-card-like ambiguity focused on one’s aspirational efforts. In contrast, the Bible’s hope builds on the specific actions of God through Jesus. This lesson will explore the hope God offers us by considering Paul – a man who endured great suffering yet remained filled with hope.
