Is hope important to you? Why?

Hope is very important to me. If I didn't have hope I wouldn't have anything. Romans 8:23-25 says: "Not only that, but we also who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance."

My hope in Jesus Christ carries me through tough times and keeps me focused on eternity and the One who gave me eternal life. Also, hope is a gift that goes along with grace. It's given by God for me to and I wait with anticipation - with hope - on Him.
