Hope


Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord,
and whose hope the Lord is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,
and that spreadeth out her roots by the river,
and shall not see when heat cometh,
but her leaf shall be green;
and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7 and 8




Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ:
by whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
And not only so,
but we glory in tribulations also;
knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
and patience, experience;
and experience, hope:
and hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God
is shed abroad in our hearts
by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Romans 5:1-5




For we are saved by hope:
but hope that is seen is not hope:
for what a man seeth,
why doth he yet hope for?

But if we hope for that we see not,
then do we with patience wait for it.
Romans 8:24-25




...Be kindly affectioned
one to another with brotherly love;
in honor preferring one another;
Not slothful in business;
fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation;
continuing instant in prayer...
Romans 12:10-12




...For whatsoever things
were written aforetime
were written for our learning,
that we through patience
and comfort of the scriptures
might have hope.

...Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.

And now abideth
faith, hope, charity,
these three;
but the greatest of these
is charity.
1 Corinthians 13:13




...For we through the Spirit
wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision
availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision;
but faith which worketh by love...
Galatians 5:5-6




There is one body, and one Spirit,
even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
one God and Father of all, who is above all,
and through all, and in you all.
Ephesians 4:4-6




...Even the mystery which hath been hid
from ages and from generations,
but now is made manifest to His saints:
to whom God would make known
what is the riches of the glory
of this mystery among the Gentiles;
which is Christ in you,
the hope of glory...
Colossians 1:26-27




But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
putting on the breastplate of faith and love;
and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath,
but to obtain salvation
by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us,
that whether we wake or sleep,
we should live together with Him.
Wherefore comfort yourselves together,
and edify one another, even as also ye do.
1 Thessalonians 5:8-11




...Now our Lord Jesus Christ
Himself, and God, even our Father,
which hath loved us,
and hath given us everlasting consolation
and good hope through grace,
comfort your hearts,
and stablish you
in every good word and work.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17




But and if
ye suffer for righteousness' sake,
happy are ye:
and be not afraid of their terror,
neither be troubled;
but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you
a reason of the hope that is in you
with meekness and fear...
1 Peter 3:14-15




Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that,
when he shall appear, we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.
And every man that hath this hope in him
purifieth himself, even as he is pure
.

because He is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved.
Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.
