Hope In A Glorious Church
The church is the bride of Christ and she will successfully fulfill His great commission to make disciples of all nations, which means the nations will experience transformation.
Ephesians 5:25–27; Matthew 28:16–20; Acts 1:8; Psalm 2:8; Revelation 11:15; Isaiah 54:3–5, 60:1–5; Acts 2
We work to leave a legacy and an inheritance for future generations, just as previous generations have done for us. While anticipating Christ’s glorious return, we simply do not know when He will come, which should inspire us to have a long-term earthly vision.
Proverbs 13:22; Acts 2:39; 2 Timothy 2:1–2; Titus 2:11–14; James 5:7–8; Isaiah 9:6–7; Matthew 25:1–29; Hebrews 11:4–30
We are not looking to escape the world but to see Christ’s victory manifested in individuals and nations, even in the face of resistance and conflict.
John 17:15–18; Luke 10:2–3; Matthew 28:18–19; Hebrews 12:1–3; John 16:33; Revelation 11:15; Acts 13:13–52
The Church is called to overcome in all circumstances: in times of suffering and persecution, but also in times of prosperity and great influence.
John 16:33; Revelation 3:5, 21; Philippians 4:11–13; Isaiah 41:10; 1 John 4:4, 5:4; Romans 8:37–39; 1 Chronicles 28:6–10; 1 Kings 5:3–5; Acts 4:13–37
