We conclude our sermon series on hope, looking at Jesus’ response to his disciple, Thomas, as he struggled with doubt. God is not afraid of our questions or our doubts. He doesn’t want empty words, but a true and genuine relationship with us. This requires honesty and trust on our part as we struggle through…
Jesus is the one and only hope for the brokenness of sin. In John 8:1-11 we read of the woman who was caught in the act of adultery, and we see how Jesus responds to this woman in the midst of her brokenness, shame, and need. Jesus, the only perfect and holy one without sin, capable of throwing the first stone, instead offers forgiveness, love, grace, and a changed life. He offers us that same hope today.
