Substantial Hope

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1/KJV).

Similarly as in 1 Corinthians 13: 7 in the verse quoted above we also have both words: faith and hope. In Hebrews 11:1 we can learn something about how they relate to each other:

  • Faith makes our hopes substantial.
  • Hopes are substantial when based on trusting relationship.
  1. Religious hopes become substantial, when based on faith in Jesus having carried the punishment for our sins on the cross of Calvary.
  2. Religious hopes become substantial when we trust God’s word: trust his commandments and his promises!

Auf meinem deutschen Blog möchte ich kurze Texte über Matthäus 11 Verse 28 bis 30 veröffentlichen und die frohe Botschaft von Jesus Christus anschaulich machen. Es lohnt sich, Jesus Christus zu vertrauen. On my new English blog "Motivation of Christian Love" I am sharing my thoughts on 1 Corinthians 13 and other biblical texts.
