Romans 8:24-25 “But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.”
The Christian faith is not a hope-so faith but a know-so faith, and even though we’ve never see Jesus Christ, we believe in Him. Our hope is in Him Whom we have not seen. Like the psalmist wrote in Psalm 62:5, we wait patiently and sometimes in silence. The real difference from those whose hope is in other people or things of the world is that our hope rests upon the promises of God, and we can trust Him, even though we haven’t seen Him–at least yet!
