Big Idea: Jesus is HopeHope..."the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best." One family in St. Petersburg, Florida had so much hope in Best Buy's Black Friday deals that they started camping out, not on the Wednesday before, but on the Wednesday...an entire 9 days before! The Best Buy ended up giving everyone in their family an iPad for their efforts. Guess it paid off! We all put our hope in different things at different times. Sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn't. There is a very interesting verse in Matthew 12.13-21 that has to do with hope. Verse 21 states that "[Jesus' name] will be the hope of all the world." So...Jesus is hope! How cool is that! Out of all of things that we can have/put hope in, that's the one thing we can't do without. And what is so amazing is that in Jesus' names alone we can find hope in so many ways. We can find hope in Jesus because he is our advocate, the Alpha & Omega, the second Adam, a Beloved Son, the Bread of Life, the Chief Shepherd, the Cornerstone, a King, a Lamb, the Light of the World, the Lion of Judah, and a Messenger...and that's just a start! We also know that when one loses hope, he dies...whether its physically, emotionally, or spiritually. It's so important to have hope! And in Jesus we have that hope! So what are you needing to have hope in this week? How can Jesus bring that hope? Challenge: Take a moment as a family to think about two things. What do you as a family need hope for this week? Who is someone that you can bring hope into their life this week?
