Waiting with Hope

“Therefore, we do not wait for the promise in despair but in hope. Hope, this glorious hope, rests in Jesus. As we consider His humble entrance into the world as a baby this Advent season, may we also eagerly await the day He returns in glory as King (Revelation 21:1-8). Like the Israelites rested for centuries in the promise of the Messiah, may we rest in the hope of His second coming. We wait. We trust. We hope. This is Advent.” Hope has Come, pg. 24

Today, as I was reflecting on these words, I thought about how important it is to not grow weary or despondent. It was only those who decided to hope who recognized Jesus when He walked among them.
