I) Introduction

Ensure to express the need to go back and read this whole chapter. It is extremely important!

II) The Hope of Strength (V. 16)

We have the presence of God (V. 7)
In our “Earthen Vessels”
Our hearts
our bodies
which are weak and dying
Gods Presence is a “Treasure” for us.
Converts and transforms us
24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
b. God gives us strength to stay strong!
c. We are being renewed everyday.
we do not give up even when we are weak.
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

III)The Hope of Glory (V. 17)

Our burden on earth is light compared to the Glory we will receive
when weighed together our troubles are light.
We need to focus on the Glory we will receive instead of the physical
23 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

IV) The Hope of Eternity (V. 18)

We have the hope of eternity in Christ.
We need to focus on the unseen world of God
Not the seen world around us.
Don’t let this world grab you
Keep faith
Keep your eye on eternity
throw off this weight you are carrying.
5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.
4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
