Hope, often gets side-lined, it’s a little ambiguous to some it is often misinterpreted as the opposite to faith, “I wasn’t in faith, or I don’t have faith for that, but I can just hope?”. Just to be clear the opposite of faith is fear. The opposite of hope is doubt and confusion – a lack of direction or focus. Hope is important! Hope is not wishing for something to happen. The Bible describes hope much differently. The world is full of people hoping:

  • Their children’s future
  • Their own futures
  • Will their money last?
  • Will they stay in health?
  • Will they win the lottery?

So, this morning I want to get straight into the definition and unpack hope, to see how it strengthen our lives.
