Hope is lost when death seems to have won.
When life is at its worst, hope doesn’t make sense.
Jesus shows up and brings hope to the hopeless.

When have you needed something or had something to look forward to so that you could make it through a busy or stressful or even painful time? What did you know was coming or what did you have confidence in that helped you make it through? (i.e. graduation, vacation, pregnancy, etc.)

Read Proverbs 10:28. How does this verse help to provide clarity that expectation and hope are synonymous?

Read Titus 1:2. What is the hope that those who follow Jesus have? Thinking back to last week's study of the word joy, how does this real hope (not just a wish or desire) bring joy no matter the circumstances?

Read Romans 4:18-22. What does this story teach us about hope, joy, and how we can be called "righteous"? What sticks out to you? What do you relate to?


Read Luke 24:1-11 and John 20:19. When have you felt like all hope was lost? When you had no confidence because death seemed to have won? How were you like the disciples who were hiding in fear?

Read Luke 24:11-12. Why did Peter so easily miss the obvious hope right in front of him? What is it that makes hope seem like nonsense to you in moments of loss or fear?

Read Luke 24:15-31. Jesus was with them, walking down the road in the midst of their hopelessness and unbelief. But finally Jesus revealed himself that he had been there all along. When have you experienced this? When have you had a realization that Jesus had been with you all along even though you had lost hope?


What do you need to have hope and a confident expectation that God is with you, He is who He says He is, and He will do what He promised? What do you need to do this week to not lose that hope?

When the women who went to the tomb had their hope restored, they ran back and told it to the hopeless, even though they knew it sounded crazy. Who in your life needs the confident expectation that Jesus offers? What is your own story of hope that you can tell them?

What do you sense the Holy Spirit is telling you or teaching you in regards to hope? What are you going to do about it?

Pray for each other regarding the answers to those last few questions. Commit to pray for each other this week, encourage each other, and hold each other accountable to take the steps that you feel like the Holy Spirit is leading you to take.
