How would you define “hope”? It’s sometimes a tricky concept to understand precisely, put into words, and know how to pursue—but all of us know when we are living without it. Yet the Bible, Christian theology, and the lives and testimonies of the generations of Christians who have lived before us all teach us that God is a God of hope, and that we are meant to live our lives in hope. At the start of this Advent season, let’s pursue hope with unshakable confidence and surrender to Jesus’s desire to make it the end goal of our Long Game.
