Got Hope?

Ok I have been chewing on this for a week now. Last thursday I was at a bible study where the leader of the study said we should not have a "hope so attitude" Well immediately that did not sit well with me. So I started looking in my bible for scripture about hope. Well I didn't want to appear rude (because it was brought to my attention that I was looking up scripture when others where listening). So I made a note to myself and when I got home I picked up the lesson that I was going to be substitute teaching for the Wednesday night class I go to and low and behold the scripture in that lesson also had hope in it... Praise the Lord!!! so here it is.



Rom 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
Rom 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it


I looked it up in strongs G1680
ἐλπίς
elpis
el-pece'
Fromἔλπω elpō which is a primary word (to anticipate, usually with pleasure); expectation (abstract or concrete) or confidence: - faith, hope.


I also looked up online the meaning

Main Entry: 1hope
Pronunciation: 'hOp
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): hoped; hop·ing
Etymology: Middle English, from Old English hopian; akin to Middle High German hoffen to hope
intransitive senses
1 : to cherish a desire with anticipation <hopes for a promotion>
2 archaic : TRUST
transitive senses
1 : to desire with expectation of obtainment
2 : to expect with confidence : TRUST
synonym see EXPECT
- hop·er noun
- hope against hope : to hope without any basis for expecting fulfillment

What has happened to hope then? What have we done to it's meaning?

By reading scripture and the meanings . We SHOULD have a hope so attitude! Are we not to cherish,trust, anticipate ? Just because the world has taken the meaning and changed it around doesn't mean we should accept it! Don't let the world steal your hope!

Just when we say I will pray for you or God Bless you we should say it with meaning the true meaning! So next time you have a "hope so attitude " try and make sure it is in the true meaning of hope! Don"t wishy wash it say it with the confidence that we have as children of God. hallelujah.

God bless!

Good post Jesuslovesu,
Romans 11:6
*But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him

Hebrews 11:1&2
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2*For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Hope is all throughout the scriptures and has special significance in the new testament.
"Hope does not arise from the individual's desires or wishes but from God, who is Himself the believer's hope. Genuine is not wishful thinking, but a firm assurance about things that are unseen and still in the future."
(Nelson's dictionary)

1Corithians 13:13
*There are three things that will endure—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

Romans 15:13
So I pray that God, who gives you hope, will keep you happy and full of peace as you believe in him. May you overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Since Christ is the Hope of Glory, the one who has an attitude of hope, would also have an attitude of Christ.

ty you guys so much for replying! Chad I really like the list and Gloria you and I had alot in common with the meaing of hope (before the Holy Spirit taught me this) Is that not amazing? When you dont even ask to learn something and then you get taught something share with others and then they inturn tell you something that they were taught. It is just so awesome ... Ok sorry about my rant lol. ty God bless!
