The Hope of Advent

December 3, 2017 |

Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-9; Mark 13:24-37; 1 Corinthians 1:3-9 | Series:

Hope is not just an optimistic attitude about one’s circumstances - it is a certainty of well-being which tracks with reality. The prayer of Isaiah reflects the agony of maintaining hope in the face of heaven’s silence; but the advent of Jesus shows us why we the perceived absence of God has more to do with our confused expectations than with the activity of God.
