Living In Hope

494754-2002

“According to his great mercy,
he has caused us to be born again
to a living hope…”
–1 Peter 1:3

Hope is more than feeling.
Hope is more than experience.
Hope is more than foresight.
Hope is a command.
Obeying it means life,
survival, endurance,
standing up to life until death
is swallowed up in victory.

–Jürgen Moltmann

The twilight world of faith

1347233038379993

The transformation of that darkness into light, as Good Friday gave way to Easter Day, constitutes the basis of the Christian hope—that the dark night of faith will finally give way to the dawn of the resurrection life. But in the meantime we struggle on in the twilight world of faith.

–Alister E. McGrath
