Hopeless Hopeful and THE Hope sermon series at Kalkaska Church of Christ

Hope That Solves a Problem

Sermon Big Idea:  The biggest reason we can have hope and be excited about Jesus is that he overcame what we could not. Amos 1:1 Zechariah 1:1 Isaiah 9:6-7 Isaiah 1:2-4,11; 2:6; 3:1,9; 5:25; 7:2 2 Chronicles 26:1-5; 2 Chronicles 26:16 Uzziah’s weakness was pride. 2 Chronicles 27:1-2; 2 Chronicles 27:6 Jotham’s weakness was the people of Judah. 2 Chronicles 28:1-4; 2 Chronicles 28:22-23 Ahaz’s weakness was other gods. 2 Chronicles 29:3 2 Kings 20:16-19 Hezekiah’s weakness was selfishness.

Hope Without a Voice

Daniel 1,3,6 Sermon Big Idea:  The best way to increase our hope is to increase our faithfulness to a holy God. Daniel 1:8 Daniel changed the diet because of his fear of God. Daniel 3:17-18 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego didn’t fear death because they serve the God of life. Daniel 6:10,16,22 Daniel survived the den because God had found him blameless. Proverbs 1:7, Daniel 4:34, Matthew 6:19-21, Mark 10:43, 2 Samuel 24:24 To increase hope, fear the God that created How COVID has affected us

But, Wait!

Sermon Big Idea:  Just when all seems hopeless, God intervenes and reminds us of his promises. Genesis 12:1-3 (75) God gave Abraham hope of being a blessing. Genesis 13:14-16 God gave Abraham hope of a long family line. Genesis 15:1-6 God gave Abraham hope of having a protector. God gave Abraham hope that the line would come from he and Sarah. Genesis 17:4-5,21 (99) God gave Abraham hope in names. Genesis 18:14 God gave Abraham hope through a messenger. Hope How COVID has affected us

A False Sense of Security

Sermon Big Idea:  The Christian life is a lifelong journey.  To say we accept Christ, but to live as though we haven’t is a road that leads to destruction. Hebrews 6:1-12 Don’t get stuck on the elementary teachings. (v. 1-2) Relying on God moves us past elementary teachings. (v. 3) It is a hopeless place to once have received Christ and then reject Him. (v. 4-8) We become more confident in our salvation as we move forward in our relationship How COVID has affected us

Why All Seems Lost

Sermon Big Idea:  To reset the gospel, we must first understand why it is such good news.  The good news starts with understanding the bad news.  And the bad news is that sin leaves us hopeless. Genesis 3:22-24 Numbers 32:13 Hopeless people wander away from God. Judges 2:3 Judges 2:4-5 Hopeless people weep for God. 2 Kings 24:10-13 2 Kings 24:8-9 2 Kings 23:31-32 Hopeless people withdraw from God. Why? Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:1-2 The earnings of sin is death. How COVID has affected us

A Self-Healing Body

Sermon Scripture:  John 13:1-15, Mark 10:42-45, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 Sermon Big Idea:  Serving was to be a part of every Christian from the beginning. John 13:1-15 For the sake of love, Jesus saw a need. For the sake of love, Jesus acted on the need. Jesus said we need to act in the same way, for the sake of love. Mark 10:42-45 James and John sought a place of honor. The other 10 were “indignant” at their ambition for the How COVID has affected us

Life on the Inside

Sermon Scripture:  John 6:22-69 Sermon Big Idea:  Be the kind of group member that may have questions, but never questions Jesus’ authority. Top things LIfe Group leaders hate but won’t tell you… You show up empty handed when it was your turn to bring the main course. 10,000 words were spoken during group and you said 9,957 of them. Every meeting you have a problem to unload that is bigger and sadder than everyone else’s issue. You were not a How COVID has affected us

Life outside the House

Life together is: Modeled – Acts 2:42-47 Motivating – Acts 4:32-37 But it is also: Uncomfortable – Acts 5:1-11 Unusual – Acts 5:12-16 Be drawn to the model, motivated by the results, patient when it is uncomfortable, and praise God that it’s unusual.

Directional Disaster

Sermon Big Idea:  Journeying with Jesus is making a name of Him.  Moving away from Jesus is making a name for ourselves. Genesis 3:24 Adam and Eve were removed from God’s blessing. Genesis 4:16 Cain moved from “the presence of the Lord.” Genesis 11:1-2,4 (NIV) The “people” set out to make a name for themselves. Genesis 13:11 Lot relied on his own wisdom and moved toward disaster. …helping people journey with Jesus means… Romans 5:1-2 By faith, we now have How COVID has affected us

What’s Missing?

Sermon Big Idea:  Is anything missing in your journey with Jesus?  Are you able to see the “forest for the trees?” John 5:1-18 What’s missing? The name of the festival A whole verse A reason one man was chosen A request Knowledge of Jesus A confrontation Faithfulness to Jesus An understanding of who Jesus is An understanding of the new covenant (Exodus 20:8-11; Numbers 15:32-36; Mark 2:23-28) What isn’t missing? A great question Mercy at the house of mercy Jesus’ How COVID has affected us
