Hope = A Work of Faith & Labor of Love

1Thessalonians 1:2-3We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. 3 We continually remember before{in the sight of} our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labour prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance/perseverance/patience and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
1Corinthians 13:13There are three things that will endure{abide[3306]}––faith, hope, and love––and the greatest of these is love.
What do you do when the “odds” seem stacked against you? When you are tempted to give up hope in the face of a seemingly impossible situation?

  • Come in prayer before the sight of our God and Father
  • Ask the Lord to encourage you through the Holy Spirit and Scripture
  • Remember the three things that endure
    • Faith, Love and Hope in our Lord Jesus Christ
      =>He is able to do what no other can, no matter how impossible it looks!

=> Enduring patient Hope is a work of Faith and labor of Love in the Lord Jesus Christ!

The power of His love makes all things possible!
He is able to do far more than all we can ask
Or imagine! –Ephesians 3:14-21
Surrender all to the Lord – He cares for you. –1Peter 5:7
Trust Him!

1Peter 5:5-7 NET … God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
Ephesians 3:19-21

19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Romans 15:5-6 New Living Translation (NLT)
