Here are 25 quotes from Christians about what hope means to them and to each of us:

  1. “Hope is called the anchor of the soul (Hebrews 6:19), 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.” -RC Sproul

  2. “The Christmas message is that there is hope for a ruined humanity–hope of pardon, hope of peace with God, hope of glory–because at the Father’s will Jesus became poor, and was born in a stable so that thirty years later He might hang on a cross.” -J.I. Packer

  3. “Without Christ there is no hope.” -Charles Spurgeon

  4. Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand.” -Thomas Aquinas

  5. “Our righteousness is in Him, and our hope depends, not upon the exercise of grace in us, but upon the fullness of grace and love in Him, and upon His obedience unto death.” -John Newton

  6. “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words — And never stops at all.” -Emily Dickinson

  7. “The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It’s enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren’t worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon.” -Joni Eareckson Tada

  8. "Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don't give up." -Anne Lamott

  9. "What gives me the most hope every day is God’s grace; knowing that his grace is going to give me the strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God." -Rick Warren

  10. “True faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God's fidelity to His Promises.” -Francis Chan

  11. "Jesus gives us hope because He keeps us company, has a vision and knows the way we should go." -Max Lucado

  12. “Notice the word ‘hope” (in Psalm 62:5). The Hebrew term literally means “a cord, as an attachment.’ Every one of us is hanging on to something or someone for security. ... if it’s someone or something other than God alone, you’re hanging on by a thread – the wrong thread.” -Beth Moore

  13. “Our world today so desperately hungers for hope, yet uncounted people have almost given up. There is despair and hopelessness on every hand. Let us be faithful in proclaiming the hope that is in Jesus.” -Billy Graham

  14. "What gives me the most hope every day is God's grace; knowing that his grace is going to give me the strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God." -Rick Warren

  15. “Remember Whose you are and Whom you serve. Provoke yourself by recollection, and your affection for God will increase tenfold; your imagination will not be starved any longer, but will be quick and enthusiastic, and your hope will be inexpressibly bright.” -Oswald Chambers

  16. “The Spirit of God first imparts love; he next inspires hope, and then gives liberty; and that is about the last thing we have in many of our churches.” -Dwight L. Moody

  17. “Only when our greatest love is God, a love that we cannot lose even in death, can we face all things with peace. Grief was not to be eliminated but seasoned and buoyed up with love and hope.” -John Piper

  18. "Christ showed us hope transformed into sacrificial love." -Chuck Colson

  19. “Jesus is the hope of the world and the local church is the vehicle of expressing that hope to the world.” -Andy Stanley

  20. “You can look forward with hope, because one day there will be no more separation, no more scars, and no more suffering in My Father’s House. It's the home of your dreams!” -Anne Graham Lotz

  21. “Simply by our proximity to Jesus, we can bring hope and life to people and places trapped in discouragement and despair.” -Louie Giglio
