Hope does not have to be some far off feeling we want to obtain. Hope is, in fact, a person. Christ in you is the hope of all glory! While the bible promises this for us, walking it out as truth in our daily lives can be much more difficult. What can hope look like in our daily lives? Read 1 Peter 1:3 above. Through the resurrection of Jesus, we find our hope! We are born again. No longer carrying our old man–or our sin nature–but made holy and righteous through the blood of Jesus. With this truth, we are equipped to have renewed minds–minds set on hope. We can choose to have hope, despite our circumstances. Jesus inside you empowers your ability to see with eyes of hope!
