uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith
Hope: to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence; to believe, desire, or trust; to place trust; rely in or on; one of the three main elements of Christian character; It is joined to faith and love, and is opposed to seeing or possessing; Hope is an essential and fundamental element of Christian life, so essential indeed, that, like faith and love, it can itself designate the essence of Christianity; Jesus Christ is the actual object of the believer’s hope, because it is in His second coming that the hope of glory will be fulfilled.
