When I was young in my Christian life, I heard a lot of preachers downplaying the role of hope when compared to faith. Well, I learned over the years that hope plays a vital role in our Christian life.
If it weren’t for Christian quotes about hope and the way they inspired me in my life I would not be where I am today. It was hope that got me through the eight years of waiting for God to restore me to ministry.
So it is my hope (no pun intended) and prayer that these Christian quotes about hope will encourage and inspire you too in your Christian walk as they did in mine.
It is said that hope springs eternal. Well, I know that at least for me, I am going to hope in the Lord.
