Hope has No Power. . .

Faith goes far beyond hope. Faith is the evidence of things hoped for. . . Hope has no power. Faith moves mountains and casts them into the sea. . . While Jesus spoke of faith on many occasions, he only uttered the word 'hope' once:


(Luke 6:34) And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.


As if to illustrate the powerlessness of hope. When you lend someone money, all you can do is hope that they pay you back. They have the power. . . they have the money and can decide whether to repay you. You have nothing really. 


Rather than clinging to faint and powerless hope. . . come to Jesus and appropriate for yourself a great measure of saving faith. . .


(Luke 7:50) And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace. . .
