Dan spoke of ways in which we attempt to "hang on to control" in the midst of the threats and challenges of life. What are ways that you try to hang on to control?
The Apostle Paul commends the church in Colossae for their "faith in Christ Jesus" and their "love for all the saints." How do you think Paul would evaluate Calvary in those two categories? How would you evaluate yourself in those two categories?
What is the worldly (secular) understanding of what "hope" is? How does that differ from the biblical meaning of "hope" (as Paul uses it in Colossians 1:5)?
Dan mentioned a number of the truths of the Gospel that a believer's "hope" is "anchored" in. Which of these truths are particularly meaningful to you?
Dan closed with the statement, "As we anchor our hope in the truth of the Gospel, the storms in our lives strengthen our faith and our love for each other." How have you seen the truth of that statement in your own life or in the lives of other Christians you know?
