Living Hope (1 Peter 1:3-5)

Key Idea: Three realities of God’s care to fuel our living hope:

  1. His great mercy establishes our hope (v. 3)
  2. His future grace directs our hope (v. 4)
    • The ministry of hope for the Christian:
      • not optimism- minimizing the bad to focusing on the good or potential good
      • not stoicism- enduring suffering without displaying pain and without complaint
  3. His present power protects our hope (v. 5)
