WHAT IS HOPE/
Humanly speaking hope is a wish, or a strong desire for something. Biblically, Hope is a firm assurance, or conviction based upon a settled fact. The Blessed Hope is the assurance we have from God's Word, that The Lord will come to receive unto Himself, His Church. The Bible says ''hope maketh not one ashamed.'' When one is fully persuaded, or firmly convinced about a matter, from God's Word, he will not be ashamed, but will boldly proclaim it. The Bible also says ''hope, which we have as an anchor.'' When we are told something by God, in His Word, and believe and act upon it, it will stabilize us, in this life. I Thank God for the Hope He has given me.
