“Where Hope is Found”

2 Timothy 1:2

Unstoppable hope comes from:

      1. Living out of the grace of God

  • Receiving grace from God
  • Giving grace to others
  • Learning to breathe God’s grace

      2. Being wrecked by the mercy of God

  • Realizing the heinousness of our sin
  • Grasping the magnitude of God’s love

      3. Walking in the peace of God

  • Peace is obtained through Christ’s death on the cross
  • Peace is maintained through prayer and surrender

Grace, mercy and peace become ours at the cross.
