Sermon Scraps: A Community of Hope

In yesterday’s sermon, Pastor Bobby shared from 1 Peter about how we should be a community that holds up the hope we have in Jesus Christ. We can be different, like this small village in Le Chambon that saved thousands of Jews during WWII because they cared for others more than they cared for themselves. We should be sympathetic toward one another, love each other, be compassionate and humble (1 Peter 3:8ff). But in order to be this kind of community, we must set Jesus apart as the most important one in our lives. We must realize his goodness and lordship over our lives. When we set Jesus apart, we are moved to be a community that offers hope in our broken world. Watch this video below as a reminder of how amazing Jesus is and let Him stir your heart to join with others as hopeful people who shed the light of Jesus in the midst of darkness.
