Evidence · Faith · Hope

hope…?

In preparation for ministry… I study… Hope…

A topic I’ve not spent much time in… something I always thought I had in short supply… being beat into pragmatism and pessimism… by the world…

But this morning… I found much evidence of hope in my life…

You see… faith is a strong suit of mine… I believe Him to be who He says He is… I accept it because He says…

And this morning I remembered the deep connection to faith and hope…

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1 ESV

Do you see it…?

Faith is… the assurance… of things hoped for…

At the heart of faith… is HOPE…

If I live by faith… then I live by hope…

In being faithful to Him… I do some pretty crazy things…

Like invite ladies to a Bible study that’s not yet complete… but move forward by faith… week by week… as if it is… assurance of things hoped for…

And I write… by faith… the conviction of things unseen…

Because… If I really had NO hope… I wouldn’t invite… I wouldn’t write…

Evidence of hope…? in my life…?

Wow…! I just may feel a little hope at the thought of it all…

Amen…
