False hope will take you nowhere.
True hope will take you through life holy and happy. True hope will keep the objective of Heaven sure in your thinking. True hope is produced by a heart full of Christ that makes men certain, confident, and provides a confirmation to the soul that Christ is real. Blessed assurance will give you hope without deviation. Hope keeps its eyes on the prize of the high calling. Not wishful thinking. Certainty that Christ takes care of you and provides you with a future of real life beyond the grave.
Hope comes from faith in Christ – not human intellect – or wishful thinking.
