Most people understand hope as wishful thinking, as in "I hope something will happen." This is not what the Bible means by hope. The biblical definition of hope is "confident expectation." Hope is ...

Hope is found all through scripture. All of the promises of God are to us who believe on Jesus as the only way of salvation by grace. First Corinthians 15:1-4 Five words. Five is grace. Christ died for our sins. That is why we know we are going to heaven when we die. We have no sins to pay for. John 3:18 We can no longer be condemned because we have believed.

John 6:37 He will never cast us out. John 6:39 He has never lost one. John 10:28-29 He gives us eternal life, and no one can pluck us from His hand.

Second Timothy 2:13 If we believe not, He abideth faithful, He can not deny himself. 

First John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doeth not commit sin, for His seed, (the Holy Spirit) remaineth in him, and He can not sin, because he is born of God. The Holy Spirit that lives in the believer can not sin. He is our sinless perfection before God.

We know we have eternal life, because Jesus died for all our sins and gave us His righteousness. Romans 4:6-8 He imputes His righteousness to us, and will no more impute sin to our account.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace ye are saved, through Faith, and that not of yourselves, It is the GIFT of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.

Salvation is a free GIFT from God whereby Jesus paid our sin debt in full. Jesus paid it all an we paid 0. It is a free GIFT.

First John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye MAY KNOW YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

First John 2:2 And He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but for the sins of the whole world. So anyone can believe and be saved. John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me HATH EVERLAISTING LIFE.

John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into judgement, but is passed from death unto life.

We have been born again by the Spirit of God. Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also after ye believed, ye were sealed by that Holy Spirit of promise. BORN AGAIN> BORN OF GOD.

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the children of God, EVEN TO THEM THAT BELEIVE ON HIS NAME.

Romans 11:6 It is all grace, not works, if it was by works, it would not longer be grace, and if by grace it is no more works. Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believe on Him who justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith, apart from the deeds of the law. Jesus fulfilled the law for us and gives us His righteousness..

Our hope is found in Him who loved us and gave Himself for us a ransom for all who have believed on Him as the only way of salvation by grace.

His one blood sacrifice for all sin forever. AMAZING GRACE, JESUS PAID IT ALL AND WE PAID 0, IT IS FREE.

Our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and His righteousness.

I'm glad you asked, the Christian's hope, is to live for the Lord daily, continuing to read and studying his word, be faithful to God, and his church, be strong in the Lord and his power, and on top of that, love everybody, be ready, when Jesus comes.
