Christian hope is having a really positive and excited feeling about the future, especially in the belief that good things are coming. It’s not just wishing for something, but trusting that something amazing will happen because of faith in God’s love and promises. So, hope is having a big, happy expectation that things will turn out well, even when facing challenges. Why, because Christian hope is faith based on God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit who promises a future with him in paradise.
39 One of the criminals who was hanging there railed at him, saying, “Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!” 40 But the other rebuked him, saying, “Don’t you fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 And we rightly so, for we are getting what we deserve for what we did, but this man has done nothing wrong.” 42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come in your kingdom.” 43 And Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”Luke 23 v 39-43
