Hope: Our Glory
Return to the Reflection Scripture.
…Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:27 ESV
Consider what you know of Christ: His character, His mission, His relationships.
How can He in you be the hope of glory?
Read Romans 4:13-25
What did God’s promise to Abraham come through? On what does it depend? Why?
How is Abraham’s hope described?
How is the God in whom he placed his hope described?
What result did Abraham’s hope against hope have on his faith? To whom did he give glory?
Read Genesis 22:1-8
Another moment in Abraham’s life where he placed hope against hope. What hopes are set against one another? How does the description of God in Romans 4 speak to his hope against hope?
Knowing what you know about Abraham, how was his hope his glory? How does this speak to your own life and struggle with hope?
Who else in Scripture wrestled with God hope against hope? How did their hope become glory?
