A Wonderful Hope

Wrapped in Hope

Several weeks ago we looked at the hope we have in Jesus, and we saw different aspects of that hope. Here’s another verse to increase you in hope that is yours in Jesus. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 (NIV) says, “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say”. The phrase that catches my attention is by his grace gave us…a wonderful hope. That tells me without knowing Jesus and His love I won’t have a wonderful hope. The Greek word for hope amplifies the meaning to be expectation, confidence. Because of Jesus’ great love for you, He’s given you hope by His grace so that you will be fully persuaded in His love, expecting and confident in your faith toward Him. You’re no longer hopeless because He’s given what you need. Let this wonderful hope through His grace encircle you today.
