#1. This is Christian hope, that the future is in God's hands. - Author: Pope Francis
Christian Hope quotes by Pope Francis
#2. Hope is called the anchor of the soul because it gives stability to the Christian life. But hope is not simply a 'wish' I wish that such-and-such would take place rather, it is that which latches on to the certainty of the promises of the future that God has made. - Author: R.C. Sproul
Christian Hope quotes by R.C. Sproul
#3. No ancient Jew was ever promised, or expected, a heavenly life. That was a wild and outrageous teaching of Jesus. Holy text never offers a heavenly hope
before Jesus. Think about it: No matter how faithful Adam would have been, he could never graduate to heaven. Going to heaven was a 'Jesus teaching.' It simply does not exist in Torah.
pg xxvii - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe
Christian Hope quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#4. Let Christ turn your natural optimism into Christian hope, your energy into moral virtue, your good will into genuine self-sacrificin g love! This is the path you are called to take. This is the path to overcoming all that threatens hope, virtue and love in your lives and in your culture. In this way your youth will be a gift to Jesus and to the world. - Author: Pope Francis
Christian Hope quotes by Pope Francis
#5. The Resurrection is the supreme vindication of Jesus' divine identity and his inspired teaching. It's the proof of his triumph over sin and death. It's the foreshadowing of the resurrection of his followers. It's the basis of Christian hope. It's the miracle of all miracles. - Author: Lee Strobel
Christian Hope quotes by Lee Strobel
#6. He suspected the Archdeacon of not having read them; he was in painful doubt as to what was really thought of them by the leading minds of Brasenose, and bitterly convinced that his old acquaintance Carp had been the writer of that depreciatory recension which was kept locked in a small drawer of Mr. Casaubon's desk, and also in a dark closet of his verbal memory. These were heavy impressions to struggle against, and brought that melancholy embitterment which is the consequence of all excessive claim: even his religious faith wavered with his wavering trust in his own authorship, and the consolations of the Christian hope in immortality seemed to lean on the immortality of the still unwritten Key to all Mythologies. For - Author: George Eliot
Christian Hope quotes by George Eliot
#7. Christian hope is not a ghost and it does not deceive. It is a theological virtue and therefore, ultimately, a gift from God that cannot be reduced to optimism, which is only human. God does not mislead hope; God cannot deny himself. God is all promise. - Author: Pope Francis
Christian Hope quotes by Pope Francis
#8. The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake. - Author: Basil Hume
Christian Hope quotes by Basil Hume
#9. Too many people never catch tomorrow as they let go of today. Capture the precious now instead of holding onto the hope of tomorrow. - Author: Eric Samuel Timm
Christian Hope quotes by Eric Samuel Timm
#10. In truth, the Christian hope rests not ultimately upon our own diligence, but on God's faithfulness.30 It is God, not us, who will ultimately persevere, and that is why he is able to promise us eternal life: where the promise is, there is all this assistance. The faithfulness of the Father, the grace of the Son, and the power of the Spirit, all are engaged in our preservation. - Author: John Owen
Christian Hope quotes by John Owen
#11. I passionately believe, belong tightly together. First, what is the ultimate Christian hope? Second, what hope is there for change, rescue, transformation, new possibilities within the world in the present? And the main answer can be put like this. As long as we see Christian hope in terms of "going to heaven," of a salvation that is essentially away from this world, the two questions are bound to appear as unrelated. - Author: N. T. Wright
Christian Hope quotes by N. T. Wright
#12. He wanted to talk, and she wanted more than anything to see him smile. - Author: Katlyn Grace
Christian Hope quotes by Katlyn Grace
#13. Let this one great, gracious, glorious fact lie in your spirit until it permeates all your thoughts and makes you rejoice even though you are without strength. Rejoice that the Lord Jesus has become your strength and your song - He has become your salvation. - Author: Charles Spurgeon
Christian Hope quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#14. Pursue peace and harmony with all men. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Hope quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#15. Optimism hopes for the best without any guarantee of its arriving and is often no more than whistling in the dark. Christian hope, by contrast, is faith looking ahead to the fulfillment of the promises of God, as when the Anglican burial service inters the corpse 'in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ.' Optimism is a wish without warrant; Christian hope is a certainty, guaranteed by God himself. Optimism reflects ignorance as to whether good things will ever actually come. Christian hope expresses knowledge that every day of his life, and every moment beyond it, the believer can say with truth, on the basis of God's own commitment, that the best is yet to come. - Author: J.I. Packer
Christian Hope quotes by J.I. Packer
#16. Darkness entered into, darkness realized, is the point of departure for all profound expressions of Christian hope. 'Meaningless darkness' becomes 'revelatory darkness' when it is confronted by the courage of a thoughtfulness and hope that is born of faith's quest for truth. - Author: Douglas John Hall
Christian Hope quotes by Douglas John Hall
#17. A Christian's hope is not a possibility but a promise in Jesus. - Author: Jim George
Christian Hope quotes by Jim George
#18. Yesterday was a dark day in the history of humanity, a terrible affront to human dignity. After receiving the news, I followed with intense concern the developing situation, with heartfelt prayers to the Lord. How is it possible to commit acts of such savage cruelty? The human heart has depths from which schemes of unheard-of ferocity sometimes emerge, capable of destroying in a moment the normal daily life of a people. But faith comes to our aid at these times when words seem to fail. Christ's word is the only one that can give a response to the questions which trouble our spirit. Even if the forces of darkness appear to prevail, those who believe in God know that evil and death do not have the final say. Christian hope is based on this truth; at this time our prayerful trust draws strength from it.

~General Audience, September 12, 2001. - Author: Pope John Paul II
Christian Hope quotes by Pope John Paul II
#19. A soul so pitiably forlorn, If such do on this earth abide, May season apathy with scorn, May turn indifference to pride; And still be not unblest- compared With him who grovels, self-debarred From all that lies within the scope Of holy faith and christian hope; Or, shipwrecked, kindles on the coast False fires, that others may be lost. - Author: William Wordsworth
Christian Hope quotes by William Wordsworth
#20. Christian hope does not promise successful days to the rich and the strong, but resurrection and life to those who must exist in the shadows of death. Success is no name of God. Righteousness is. - Author: Jurgen Moltmann
Christian Hope quotes by Jurgen Moltmann
#21. There is no need to be worried by facetious people who try to make the Christian hope of 'Heaven' ridiculous by saying they do not want 'to spend eternity playing harps'. The answer to such people is that if they cannot understand books written for grown-ups, they should not talk about them. All the scriptural imagery (harps, crowns, gold, etc.) is, of course, a merely symbolical attempt to express the inexpressible. Musical instruments are mentioned because for many people (not all) music is the thing known in the present life which most strongly suggests ecstasy and infinity. Crowns are mentioned to suggest the fact that those who are united with God in eternity share His splendour and power and joy. Gold is mentioned to suggest the timelessness of Heaven (gold does not rust) and the preciousness of it. People who take these symbols literally might as well think that when Christ told us to be like doves, He meant that we were to lay eggs. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Christian Hope quotes by C.S. Lewis
#22. The cross of Christ is the true ground and chief cause of Christian hope. - Author: Pope Leo I
Christian Hope quotes by Pope Leo I
#23. Christian hope frees us to act hopefully in the world. It enables us to act humbly and patiently, tackling visible injustices in the world around us without needing to be assured that our skill and our effort will somehow rid the world of injustice altogether. Christian hope, after all, does not need to see what it hopes for (Heb. 11:1); and neither does it require us to comprehend the end of history. Rather, it simply requires us to trust that even the most outwardly insignificant of faithful actions - the cup of cold water given to the child, the widow's mite offered at the temple, the act of hospitality shown to the stranger, none of which has any overall strategic socio-political significance so far as we can now see - will nevertheless be made to contribute in some significant way to the construction of God's kingdom by the action of God's creative and sovereign grace. - Author: Craig M. Gay
Christian Hope quotes by Craig M. Gay
#24. The old don was finding it hard to live in Christian hope and the general trajectory of his thoughts was retrospective rather than anticipatory. He had recently met his first wife in a pub for a drink and he had expected, foolishly and romantically, that they might speak about the love that they had once shared and what might have been had they stayed together, but instead they had talked about growing deaf, their arthritis, and how much time they had left on earth. 'Old - Author: James Runcie
Christian Hope quotes by James Runcie
#25. Look no where else than within. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Hope quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#26. To have Christian hope means to know about evil and yet to go to meet the future with confidence. The core of faith rests upon accepting being loved by God, and therefore to believe is to say Yes, not only to him, but to creation, to creatures, above all, to men, to try to see the image of God in each person and thereby to become a lover. That's not easy, but the basic Yes, the conviction that God has created men, that he stands behind them, that they aren't simply negative, gives love a reference point that enables it to ground hope on the basis of faith. - Author: Pope Benedict XVI
Christian Hope quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#27. There are a lot of Christians who are halfway fellows. They stand in the door, holding on to the Church with one hand while they play with the toys of the world with the other. They are in the doorway and we can't bring sinners in. - Author: Mordecai Ham
Christian Hope quotes by Mordecai Ham
#28. It was an itinerary for an alternate life. If things had gone according to my wife's vision, yesterday she would have hovered near me as I read this poem, watching me expectantly, the hope emanating from her like a fever: *Please get this. Please get me.* - Author: Gillian Flynn
Christian Hope quotes by Gillian Flynn
#29. O that Christians would learn to live with one eye on Christ crucified and the other on his coming in glory! If everlasting joys were more in your thoughts, spiritual joys would abound more in your hearts. No wonder you are comfortless when heaven is forgotten. When Christians let fall their heavenly expectations but heighten their earthly desires, they are preparing themselves for fear and trouble. Who has met with a distressed, complaining soul where either a low expectation of heavenly blessings, or too high a hope for joy on earth is not present? What keeps us under trouble is either we do not expect what God has promised, or we expect what he did not promise. - Author: Richard Baxter
Christian Hope quotes by Richard Baxter
#30. We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,And that's the burden of a year. - Author: Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Christian Hope quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#31. O Lord save mankind! - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Christian Hope quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#32. Life is finite but you're blessed with infinite love. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Christian Hope quotes by Debasish Mridha
#33. All great amusements are dangerous to the Christian life; but among all those which the world has invented there is none more to be feared than the theater. It is a representation of the passions so natural and so delicate that it excites them and gives birth to them in our hearts, and, above all, to that of love. - Author: Blaise Pascal
Christian Hope quotes by Blaise Pascal
#34. There is scarcely anything that is right that we cannot hope to accomplish by labor and perseverance. But the first must be earnest and the second unremitting. - Author: Robert E.Lee
Christian Hope quotes by Robert E.Lee
#35. I am so anti-people's opinions when I'm making a record, but when it's finished and I put it out there, I hope somebody likes it. - Author: Gary Allan
Christian Hope quotes by Gary Allan
#36. The past was more Christian? At times perhaps, in others, though, no. - Author: Rocco Buttiglione
Christian Hope quotes by Rocco Buttiglione
#37. Sometimes they are a matter of luck; the photographer could not expect or hope for them. Sometimes they are a matter of patience, waiting for an effect to be repeated that he has seen and lost or for one that he anticipates. - Author: Bill Brandt
Christian Hope quotes by Bill Brandt
#38. The goal of the Christian is not to become like Jesus; because as He is, so are we in this world. - Author: Chris Oyakhilome
Christian Hope quotes by Chris Oyakhilome
#39. To deny the existence of God would be to close your eyes to the beauty around you, to close your ears to the symphony of nature, to close your nostrils to the scents wafting on the breeze, to close your mouth to the delicacies of nourishment, to close your hands to the feel of luxury, to close your mind to the ability to think, and to close your heart to the only love that can penetrate the depths of the soul. For in Him all things consist, in Him we live, and move, and have our being, and without Him we cannot help but be fools. - Author: J.E.B. Spredemann
Christian Hope quotes by J.E.B. Spredemann
#40. I'm going to try to enjoy the All-Star break, hope my players reflect on what happened the first half of the season, come back with a different attitude, try to find our solution on how to win it. - Author: Don Baylor
Christian Hope quotes by Don Baylor
#41. Never lose temper or get angry at a person who deserves your love. Remember everyone is craving for and deserves your love. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Christian Hope quotes by Debasish Mridha
#42. the evils of ego devour the soul with darkness, destroy all hope, and eat away at any chance of experiencing the pure beauty of a glowing, unspoiled love - Author: Bodhi Smith
Christian Hope quotes by Bodhi Smith
#43. Affliction shows the power of Christ's blood, when it gives peace in an hour of trouble, when it can make happy in sickness, poverty, persecution and death. Do not be surprised if you suffer, but glorify God. - Author: Robert Murray M'Cheyne
Christian Hope quotes by Robert Murray M'Cheyne
#44. Ben Says: If our children are the hope & future for a better world...then let's work diligently to better their lives today!

Timothy Pina

Christian Hope quotes by Timothy Pina
#45. The prudent, penniless beginner in the world, labors for wages awhile, saves a surplus with which to buy tools or land, for himself; then labors on his own account another while, and at length hires another new beginner to help him. This, say its advocates, is free labor-the just and generous, and prosperous system, which opens the way for all-gives hope to all, and energy, and progress, and improvement of condition to all. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Christian Hope quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#46. Which is to say that we all have dragons to slay in life. This one is mine. I hope that doing so will provide a model to others on how to find the bravery to be true to oneself, even if it means doing something that seems impossible. - Author: Jennifer Finney Boylan
Christian Hope quotes by Jennifer Finney Boylan
#47. There is something that might be called cinematic beauty. It can only be expressed in a film, and it must be present for that film to be a moving work. When it is very well expressed, one experiences a particularly deep emotion while watching that film. I believe that it is this quality that draws people to come and see a film, and that it is the hope of attaining this quality that inspires the filmmaker to make his film in the first place. - Author: Akira Kurosawa
Christian Hope quotes by Akira Kurosawa
#48. My first instinct when I write songs is not a negative one. It's something positive ... Everything I've ever done has some form of hope in it, I think. - Author: Noel Gallagher
Christian Hope quotes by Noel Gallagher
#49. I really hope it engenders a lot of conversation because I believe there are a lot of people who put on faces. We all do it, every time we walk out the door. And there are a lot of people who have to hide who they are. And I think this story speaks to that. - Author: Glenn Close
Christian Hope quotes by Glenn Close
#50. If ever I expected to come face to face with an angry Christian fundamentalist, it wasn't in FAO Schwarz. - Author: J.K. Rowling
Christian Hope quotes by J.K. Rowling
#51. Hope, Tamsen realized, could be a very dangerous thing, especially when dealt to desperate hands. - Author: Alma Katsu
Christian Hope quotes by Alma Katsu
#52. Because 98 percent of our ideas are not great ideas, or everyone would be a billionaire. So yeah. That's something people have had a lot of experience in: being told our idea is bad or our performance is bad. I think that's the one common thread between all working actors is that they have a pretty thick skin - or you'd like to hope. You're used to rejection, that's for sure. - Author: Dax Shepard
Christian Hope quotes by Dax Shepard
#53. Love! In this world of sadness, you are my happiness. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Christian Hope quotes by Debasish Mridha
#54. Working on 'Raising Hope' is a very hurry-up-and-wait activity, and I just always liked the idea of being as productive as I can be. I write because I don't just want that time to dissolve, where I'm sitting in a trailer staring blankly at the paintings of moccasins that came with the trailer. - Author: Lucas Neff
Christian Hope quotes by Lucas Neff
#55. The Nazi radio blamed us for every filthy evil thing in this world. The Nazis called us subhuman and, in the next breath, superhuman; accused us of plotting to murder them, to rob them blind; declared that they had to conquer the world to prevent us from conquering the world. The radio said that we must be dispossessed of all we owned; that my father, who had dropped dead while working, had not really worked for our pleasant flat - the leather chairs in the dining room, the earrings in my mother's ears - that he had somehow stolen them from Christian Austria, which now had every right to take them back. - Author: Edith Hahn Beer
Christian Hope quotes by Edith Hahn Beer
#56. There's enough hard stuff going on in people's lives, and you really need that joy that laughter can bring. I don't have to put that in a Christian compartment. - Author: Patricia Heaton
Christian Hope quotes by Patricia Heaton
#57. Follow Christ in the denial of all the wills of self, and then all is put away that separates you from God; the heaven born new creature will come to life in you, which alone knows and enjoys the things of God, and has his daily food of gladness in that manifold blessed, and blessed, which Christ preached on the mount. - Author: William Law
Christian Hope quotes by William Law
#58. Nothing that a Christian and a Muslim can say to each other will render their beliefs mutually vulnerable to discourse, because the very tenets of their faith have immunized them against the power of conversation. Believing strongly, without evidence, they have kicked themselves loose of the world. It is therefore in the very nature of faith to serve as an impediment to further inquiry. - Author: Sam Harris
Christian Hope quotes by Sam Harris
#59. Mothers are programmed to teach the fit. They are unequipped to listen to pleas, to alter their patterns. Mothers know how to nurse and nurture those who they have hope for - they coo over babies with infections they can help heal, they give advice for things they know, they protect from the dangers they know how to fear. But once their baby becomes so hurt the mother doesn't know how to heal her, she neglects because she doesn't know better. The tricks she knows don't work, she fears, and, eventually, when she is so lost she feels hopeless, she abandons. - Author: Aspen Matis
Christian Hope quotes by Aspen Matis
#60. Time is no longer endless or the horizon destitute of hope. - Author: Charles Lindbergh
Christian Hope quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#61. When you come to the realization that the totality of yourself, what you have treasured, what your friends have admired, is totally useless, you will suffer, but we say, that it is only from this point that there is any hope for your becoming. We are so incredibly small, mere specks in our whole solar system. - Author: G.I. Gurdjieff
Christian Hope quotes by G.I. Gurdjieff
#62. It bothers me to know there is the possibility that I as a Christian would be not only an underdog, but that I would be trodden upon if I claimed that I was a Christian. - Author: Lee Greenwood
Christian Hope quotes by Lee Greenwood
#63. I do my work and do the best I can. I'm quite happy with my anonymity. All I can ever hope for is that I continue to do great work that will be remembered, and I leave my imprint so that my son can say proudly, 'That's my dad!' - Author: Eamonn Walker
Christian Hope quotes by Eamonn Walker
#64. I hope for everything. - Author: Sue Monk Kidd
Christian Hope quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#65. You can read books on stuff all day long, but until you get out there and just do it, if you want to start playing, and you want to make some music, then go out and play. Go find yourself a venue and play, even if it's in your home. Just play every day. You win the fight by fighting. - Author: Christian Kane
Christian Hope quotes by Christian Kane
#66. I hate the whole concept of the clog! It's fake, it's ugly, and it's not even comfortable! - Author: Christian Louboutin
Christian Hope quotes by Christian Louboutin
#67. God's Word tells us that God has spoken of old in many portions and in many ways through His servants concerning His heart's desire and that He loves us. But man did not understand. Therefore, God had to personally come to this world and become a man. This man is Jesus, the Christ, whom we know. - Author: Watchman Nee
Christian Hope quotes by Watchman Nee
#68. Love much dear friends for love will bring the healing joy and hope of Spring ... - Author: John McLeod
Christian Hope quotes by John McLeod
#69. Lord,
I pray that you will let my talent bring JOY and BEAUTY to a world that sometimes is dark and discouraging. - Author: Jennifer Allwood
Christian Hope quotes by Jennifer Allwood
#70. He leant his two elbows on his knees, and his chin on his hands and remained rapt in dumb meditation. On my inquiring the subject of his thoughts, he answered gravely 'I'm trying to settle how I shall pay Hindley back. I don't care how long I wait, if I can only do it at last. I hope he will not die before I do!'
'For shame, Heathcliff!' said I. 'It is for God to punish wicked people; we should learn to forgive.'
'No, God won't have the satisfaction that I shall,' he returned. 'I only wish I knew the best way! Let me alone, and I'll plan it out: while I'm thinking of that I don't feel pain. - Author: Emily Bronte
Christian Hope quotes by Emily Bronte
#71. Sometimes it's our darkest moments that make us shine. - Author: Z.R. Southcombe
Christian Hope quotes by Z.R. Southcombe
#72. Of the seven billion people who reside on planet Earth, only 25% could, in the broadest sense of the word, be classified as "Christian" (and the percentage who have personally trusted in Christ for salvation is much smaller), meaning that over five billion people in the world are destined to hell if indeed Christ offers the exclusive path for salvation. To many people, such a claim is offensive. - Author: Robert Jeffress
Christian Hope quotes by Robert Jeffress
#73. He has definitely cornered the market on enigma. I hope Stella goes for the deeply layered type. - Author: Tera Lynn Childs
