• When it comes to the things of and the people of God sometimes we have the wrong expectations.
  • 7-9 Expecting Jesus to come back right now, and living like it.
    • We can have a problem loving, but also letting other love us, letting them in.
  • 10-11 Expecting God to work through and among us.
  • 12-18 Expecting trials to strengthen our faith, and suffering because of Jesus.
    • Some suffering is just life. Suffering because you are living for Jesus and Jesus is living in you is normal. If there is no tension in your life because of Jesus, then something is amiss.
    • Suffering and blessing are not mutually exclusive as some say.
  • 19 Expecting God to be faithful with what we commit to Him.
