Overflow - Part 1: "Major Spillage in Lake Country"

Series: Overflow

Hope.  We all carry some level of hope.  It could be the hope for a good grade on a test, hope for a promotion at work, hope for a new relationship, or even hope that our neighbor shovels our driveway.  And of course, the hope that this is the year (and every year going forward) the Packers win it all.  We all hope for certain things, but the level of hope we have all depends completely on what or who we are trusting in each situation.  And beyond situational hope, you can be a person that is filled with authentic hope.  We see in the book of Romans, getting trust right in our life is the first step to becoming a person that overflows with hope no matter the circumstances.

Part 1 – “Major Spillage in Lake Country”

July 7 & 10


Romans 15:13

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.


“This verse says so much in a short space that it would be worth learning it by heart, mulling it over again and again, and turning it into a prayer, prayer for our own churches, prayer for the worldwide church today and tomorrow, prayer for God to be glorified in the life of his people”

-N.T. Wright


Hope is rooted in trust.


Biblical hope is the joyful anticipation of good.


Acts 1:8

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.


When you put your faith in Jesus, all of the Holy Spirit lives in you.  The problem is we don’t often give the Holy Spirit all of us.


The best way to find out if you trust somebody is to trust them.  —Ernest Hemingway
