Living Out a Living Hope


1 Peter 1: 10 - 13



  • We have more hope than the prophets
  • We have more hope than the angels
  • Set Your Hope
    • Two Conditions
    • Eager Expectation


  • Taking the greatness of salvation for granted
  • Trusting in False Hopes
  • Not Looking Forward to Heaven


  • What will heaven be like?
    • New
    • Substance of a Shadow
    • Better than the First Coming

Training in Righteousness

  • Resolve to be sober-minded
  • Resolve to see every joy as a mere taste of heaven
  • Resolve to hope MOST in the return of Jesus Christ

Reflection Questions:

  1. Why is our salvation so great? And in what ways do you tend to take salvation for granted?
  2. Would you say you have been sober-minded during this season? How does consumption of digital media affect you spiritually?
  3. What are you most eagerly anticipating, that is, setting your hoping on?
  4. What do you imagine the return of Christ and heaven to be like? What will be the best thing about it?
  5. How does placing your hope in heaven enable you to endure hardship?
  6. What will you resolve to do as a result of this passage?
