Everyone needs hope. With a clear hope we can conquer all kinds of obstacles. Without it we lose our motivation to continue on. The problem is that life moves fast – so fast that we rarely slow down enough to realize what is - or should be - driving us. This means we rarely ever drink in the inspiration our hope can readily supply. In other words, we often go through our daily routine feeling thirsty instead of refreshed. How do we reverse this trend? We need to define what our hope is, how well we truly understand and commit to it and how far it reaches into our present and future. This can only be done by examining what the Bible describes it to be. Once we as Christians establish it as personally obvious, it can then also become publicly observable.
