In a spiritual world of quick fixes and vague emotion, is it crazy to believe there is still a place for insights based on simple, basic, theological understanding. I believe it is worth exploring.

Hopes All Things
Love hope all things (1 Corinthians 13:7). This does not mean that we can hope for a life of unbroken comfort (John 16:33; 1 Peter 4:13; 2 Corinthians 4:17,18). But it is hope in the actual promises of God (Romans 4:18; Ephesians 1:18; 1 Thessalonians 4:13). This involves the hope that Christ will ultimately be victorious, and His people will be victorious with Him (Romans 8:37; Revelation 21:4; Philippians 3:20,21). Also, if God is at work in the lives of people, it gives us hope that they may come to Him or repent and change their behavior (John 6:44; 16:8-11; Acts 13:48). These are the hopes that love for God and love for others would have us entertain. So that we may escape the dreary modern prison of a hopeless world.
