Living Hope

He is risen! He is risen indeed!


Through His resurrection, we are born again to a living hope

Christians are born again to a living hope!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)

Living hope rests on Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Our living hope is hope in our eternal life, in our forthcoming glorification. Our living hope rests on Christ Jesus, who is our hope, on the God of hope, and on the power of the Holy Spirit.

Christ Jesus, who is our hope. (1 Timothy 1:1)

Living Hope is eternal

Just as God — Father, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit — is living and eternal, so our living hope is eternal. It never dies. Our living hope is secured through Jesus Christ’s resurrection.

It means we have (for sure) a future, eternal life with God.

Abound in living hope NOW

As we abound in our living hope, we are filled with joy and peace.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)

Our living hope looks forward to glory, knowing that we will be resurrected just as our Lord and Savior was.

He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus. (2 Corinthians 4:14)

This gives us faith and strength to persevere through hard times now. We know, we KNOW, that God is bringing us Home, and whatever we are going through is “momentary.”

For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison. (2 Corinthians 4:17)

Look ahead in our living hope

Look ahead to our promised, secured, eternal life. As we look ahead, we abound in hope, in joy and peace.

Praise Almighty God.
