Jesus Is Our Hope.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you  may overflow with hope.” – Romans 15:13

Our hope should rest on Jesus. “…We wait for the blessed hope — the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good.” (Titus 2:13,14) “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy, He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter 1:3)

Because of our hope in Jesus, we can be encouraged to keep pressing on and living in joy. “We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 1:3) This encourages other brothers and sisters in Christ, as they see us living in a way that demonstrated our hope in Jesus. “For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when He comes ? Is it not you?” (1 Thessalonians 2:19)
