Hope is our anchor, firm and secure.
Christianity entered the world at a time of terrible turmoil, but Christians found hope of victory over circumstances, as we do today.
Biblical hope is not wishful thinking or rah-rah optimism. When Paul and Timothy “put [their] hope in the living God” (1 Tm 4:10), it wasn’t a mindless pipe dream, it was certainty that God would see them through. “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (Heb 11:1).
Our hope is secure, for nothing can come between us and the love of God: “Neither the present nor the future, nor any powers . . . nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom 8:38–39).
With hope as your companion
you’ll never walk alone.
