“These things that he’s giving—the hope and the joy and the peace—are not separate from him, they are part of him. He’s the God of hope, so he’s actually giving us himself.” — Courtney Doctor
This month’s memory verse: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” — Romans 15:13
Today’s podcast: In today’s episode, Natalie Abbott and Courtney Doctor are taking a deep dive into this month’s verse, Romans 15:13. So what is “hope”? And what are we supposed to hope in? Is overflowing with hope really possible? Don’t miss this uplifting conversation where you’ll be encouraged to remember who God is, be rooted in why hope and joy and peace that defy our circumstances is a reality for those who trust in Christ, and be stirred to think about how this overflowing hope isn’t just for us, but for those around us as well.
