What is hope, and what do you mean when you say you have hope? Do you have a confident expectation when you hope for something, or has hope become just a new way to express doubt and unbelief in what could be possible? Most of the time in our society—and sometimes even in the church—we hear the word hope used in a weak, doubtful way. So what must we do to have hope become born again in our vocabularies?
In There Is Hope, author and minister Tom Battle offers a way to restore hope’s true meaning, using a biblical perspective to explain how hope is not merely a weaker form of faith. Instead, believers can learn how hope is the powerful partner of faith. Hope can be the anchor of our souls, and as we wait on the Lord, it is our hope that unlocks the key to the future—resurrection and eternity with Christ. Hope is the spiritual compass that points the believer in the right direction.
It is time for the word hope to be born again in the vocabulary of each and every believer. Be encouraged! There is hope for the hopeless, and when a weakened hope based on circumstances and the world fades away, real Bible-based hope will still be there to show you the way to truth and salvation.
