Because we have a living Hope who is Jesus Christ, the righteous One, we need to persevere in our faith. We should also pray diligently for answers to our needs.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. (Rom 12:12 NIV)
Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. (Ps 62:8 NKJV)
Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing . . . (1 Thes 5:16-17 NKJV)
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Col 1:27 NIV)
Glory to God! God is our refuge—our safe haven and our protector.
The tomb couldn’t hold the living and victorious body of our Savior. Jesus lived a holy and sinless life on earth.
He appeared to many people several days after He had been crucified bearing the wounds of the cross. When He did, Jesus demonstrated power and victory over death. Jesus is ALIVE. Glory to God! Jesus is our hope because He is alive; He is almighty; and He has reconciled us to God the Father.
