The following is a short excerpt from a sermon preached at Bow Valley Christian Church on October 30, 2016. The entire sermon can be heard here.
In a world of fear and pessimism, Jesus provides hope. Can we proclaim
that to the world? When we hear people lamenting about this weird presidential
election in the US, can we say Jesus is our hope? When we hear people talking
about real estate bubbles and the downturn in Calgary’s economy, can we say
that Jesus is our hope? When we hear of people moving into the American Redoubt
to live “off the grid” and away from trouble, can we say that Jesus is our
hope? When we hear of wars in far off places causing a flood of refugees into Europe
and the rest of the world, can we say that Jesus, the Messiah, is our hope?
