- H. Richard Niebuhr - "The Hope of Glory" (February 3, 1957)
The hope of glory of which Paul writes about in Romans 8 can feel distant and abstract to us; it seems like something that has faded away in our era of constant war and economic depression. Yet, it has not faded, but has only been repressed. It may yet be rekindled in the life of the Church bringing about a newness of life. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 27:27. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 1:02:54.
Key quotation: “The hope of glory seems faint in us. We live towards the past so much more frequently than towards the future. We live towards the apparent so much more than towards that which is hidden behind the veil of things. And yet, the hope of glory is not gone. There is in us a longing for a longing. The time will come again when we shall move forward toward this newness of life. And the proper response to that is gratitude.”
