“Now hope does not disappoint; because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” – Romans 5:5, NJKV
As Paul states clearly in 1 Corinthians 13:13, faith, hope and love are at the heart of the Christian life. Our relationship with God begins with faith, which helps us realize that we are delivered from our past by Christ’s death. Hope grows as we learn all that God has in mind for us; it gives us the promise of the future. And God’s love fills our lives and gives us the ability to reach out to others.
