And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us
Hope is the assurance that what we believe will happen.
We could call it spiritual confidence. We have that spiritual confidence because more than just a wish, more than just an emotion, more than just a belief rests in our heart; God himself lives in us through his Holy Spirit.
When we become Christians, Jesus pours out the Spirit upon us as God's gift to us to cleanse us, make us part of the same Body, and live inside us. We don't just have these blessings; God keeps refreshing it through the Holy Spirit, just as Jesus had promised.
Holy God, thank you for not only coming to us in Jesus and living in us through your Spirit. Please pour your love into my heart so that the fruit of your grace may flow from me to those around me and everyone around me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
