Definition of Biblical Hope:
It is the confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness.
“Our perspective today is informed by the reality that resurrection awaits God’s children. This means we’ll never pass our peaks. The best is yet to come! No need for bucket lists, because the adventures awaiting us in the New Heavens and on the New Earth will far exceed the greatest thrills of this life. Right when we think “it can’t get any better than this”...it will.”
- Randy Alcorn
