LORD, I have hoped for your salvation, and done your commandments.”
Psalm 119:166

Every man who has this hope in him purifies himself, even as He is pure.”
1John 3:3

The hope that Jesus creates in our souls has power; it moves us to overcome the world and do the will of God.  Hope in Christ is not like wishing on a star; it is real and sure and strong.  “We are saved by hope” (Rom. 8:24) because God’s hope has real power.
Live and rejoice in your hope!  This whole world is hopeless, but God has called you out of the world and given you a precious, real hope.
