12/31/16 We Press On Because Of Our Hope

“And we, who have already been given new life in Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, though also in agony, are filled with hope in the knowledge of what is to come – our official entry into the glorious family of God and the redemption of all creation.  It is with this hope that we have been reborn, and this hope lives within our hearts, giving us the strength to endure all.  We hope for something that we cannot see with our eyes, but that we know with our hearts is true.  If we could already see it with our human eyes, we would no longer need to hope, because we would already have what we hoped for.  Instead, we hope for what we cannot yet see, and press on with all that we have in us to reach that goal.”
