Coming March 5, 2019
You put your hope in Christ, and instead of feeling blessed, you feel sucker-punched. You wonder if you’ve done something wrong, or worse, been duped. Hope seems slippery.
But what if hope isn’t a flimsy shred after all? What if the hope Christ offers is a certainty you can count on, even when you feel disappointed?
Remarkable Hope retells the stories of eight hopeful people in the Bible who appeared—at first—to be disappointed by Jesus. Their stories reveal a pattern of being surprised by Jesus in drastic ways. As we observe Christ’s faithful commitment to them, we will be wowed by his unseen plan and revived by his enduring presence. With unexpected methods and surprising gifts, Jesus transforms disappointment into the certainty of remarkable hope. Not only for them, but for us too. We can finally discover what the apostle Paul declared, “our hope does not disappoint us.”
