Abound in Hope

“In Him shall the Gentiles [nations] hope! Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 5:12-13

God is our hope! He is the hope of the nations!

Without God mankind is without hope — hopeless.

God alone gives us hope!

This is an incredible blessing of salvation. Those who trust in Christ are literally transformed from hopelessness to being filled with hope — abounding in hope.

Paul prays that God who is our hope will fill the Roman believers with joy and peace as they continue to believe and trust in Him — and that their hope may abound and overflow to others by the power of the Holy Spirit.

God must be my only hope! I must not just believe in Him — but I must hope in Him. This is a present and continuing action — keep on hoping in God. Then my hope in God will overflow to others so that they will see my hope in God.

God, fill me with hope! Through your Spirit may I abound in hope. And may my family abound in hope. As I follow You, may You be my hope. Amen.

    I definitely agree that we have hope in God, I agree that Jesus is our hope, I see this to be very encouraging as a believer myself, and I can say that personally He is my hope, but if I were to look at this from the perspective of a non-disciple, I have to say that this is very unappealing. I have to ask, who are you trying to reach with this post?
