Hope comes from remembering what God has done for us.

BIBLE READING: Romans 5:1-11

FOCUS VERSE: By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise

Hope grows as we learn what God has in mind for us. His plan for us gives us the promise of a better future. When God’s love enters or life it gives us the ability to reach out to others.
