We are bombarded with reasons to lose hope, but hope is an essential quality for the follower of Jesus. Our reasons to hope are not based on the world around us, but the purpose and character of God. In this study we will look at Colossians chapter 1 and explore six reasons to have hope in our lives based on the person and work of Jesus Christ.
