It’s a simple word. It has four letters, but tons of power. On dark days – and we all have them – it is easy to think that nothing is going to turn out all right.
Hope is a very important thing to possess in our lives. The Scriptures say that hope, faith and love are the only things that will remain. Granted, love will always be the greatest of the three, but hope is right up there! Hopelessness is just another word for despair. It’s a feeling that all is lost. Even in the wake of serious loss you can carry on if you have hope.
Christian hope is when God has promised that something is going to happen and you put your trust in that promise.
Christian hope is a confidence that something will come to pass because God has promised it will come to pass.
