My Hope Is Built | Our Hope and Salvation | Tim McConnell

My Hope Is Built | Our Hope and Salvation | Tim McConnell

Dec 24, 2019

Passage: Luke 2:1-7

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: My Hope Is Built

Category: Advent, New Testament



Our soul tends toward all kinds of things to find rest, security and hope. What makes you feel hopeless? What makes you feel powerless? You are not alone. The miracle of Christmas is that the same God who made this strange rock called earth, the same God who fashioned us in all our complexity and beauty, the same God who gave us intelligence and spirits and souls, this selfsame God has come to be our hope and our salvation. Hope that life will not end in death. Hope that all things will be restored to justice and order. Hope that the good things (beauty, love, joy) are not empty accidents of biochemistry, but the real and abiding stuff of life. Salvation is come in Jesus Christ. The curse that makes all the world ache is cured by the life, death and resurrection of this baby Jesus. He alone is our hope and our salvation. “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”


Where do you hang your hope? If all we have is what we find in this world, we are sunk. There is plenty to hope for, but not a lot of good news to build hope on for the future. Jesus is a place to build your hope. Jesus is a solid rock. Jesus, born on Christmas Day, is our hope and our salvation.
