How important is hope? Without hope we are miserable; hope is the driving force behind all creation. If we had no hope, there would be no possibility of recovery. Understanding who Jesus is gives each of us a hope that can transcend even our deepest despair. In the Gospel of Matthew, we see and hear the message of hope that is available to everyone, not just to a select group of people. Jesus’ resurrection forms the basis of our hope because in it God demonstrated power over death. Our recovery can only be complete in Jesus. 1 Corinthians 13:13 says; There are three things that will endure-faith, hope, and love-and the greatest of these is love. We cannot live without hope, it is essential in life. Have a wonderful day!
