Like faith and love, hope is unique to a Christian. therefore seek this hope in our Christian life. Hope can be described as happy anticipation of good which is coming for the believer. This comes from knowing God.
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Peace Thru God
Where God comes and is welcomed by humble obedience. Then there is fullness of these precious gifts. So as that a man has as much gladness and peace as he can hold. When we have God for the joy of our hearts and peace.
They who thus trust in Jesus Christ are they to whom, on condition of, and at the moment of their trust or faith, God gives this fullness of joy and peace. Jesus Christ is the object of all our hope. He is the Savior who has freed us from condemnation. He has given us eternal life as a free gift. Our hope rests completely in Him and the promise of His coming.
A common factor among those who are depressed is that they lack hope. Discouraged people and those who are apathetic about life also lack hope.
“That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world”
Therefore hope is essential in life, without hope men/women will perish no matter what their physical condition. There are other kinds of religion and religious exercise than that of trust. There is no promise of peace and joy to them. “Fill you with all joy and peace” into your own hearts to see whether you are a Christian or not.
Therefore the best demonstration of a heaven of blessedness is the present possession of joy and peace in believing.
