What is Living Hope?
Living Hope is Jesus Christ! The name Living Hope is from the Bible, 1 Peter 1:3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy, he has given us new birth into a LIVING HOPE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead”
In the world we live in, Hope is often understood and described as wishful thinking. For e.g, you often hear people say “I hope I get the job, or I hope to pass my exam” etc. Having this kind of hope often leads to disappointment and failure. But as Christians, we have LIVING HOPE grounded in Jesus Christ's resurrection. .The hope has power and gives us strength. The more we fix our hope on Him, the more our hope grows! This gives us the confidence that what we are praying for will come to pass because God has promised it.
