The Apostle Paul on Hope

To assist our work on hope, here are the passages speaking of hope in the first few pages of Volume 2 of Is it Possible to Live this Way? I quote the passages as they appear in the book, but I have linked the NAB to facilitate looking at the context of each quote.

"Justified therefore by faith, we are in peace with God through the Lord Jesus Christ; through Him we have also obtained through faith, the possibility of acceding to this grace and in which we find ourselves, and of which we boast in the hope of the glory of Christ."

"Strong in such hope we're full of certainty."

"Hope that is the Lord Jesus."

"Paul apostle of Jesus Christ by the command of God our Saviour and by the command of Jesus Christ, our hope."

"We labour and suffer reproach because we have place our hope in the living God."

Faith - the first page of this book also refers to a few scripture passages on faith.

"the just man lives by faith"

"justice is faith"
