Basic hope is a feeling or desire for something, and confidence in the possibility of its fulfilment. When this type of hope involves other people’s responses for fulfilment it can be classified as relative hope, because it is dependent on their feelings and desires. Theological hope on the other hand is absolute because being of God it is of love for us and being of love for us it guarantees wise fulfilment that lasts forever.
God spoke of hope in this way:
To have hope in Me is to know Me. To know Me is to love Me and know that you are loved by Me. Hope then is the expectation to love Me and be loved by Me forever.
To begin to fully understand this message we must first see hope as that theological virtue by which we desire God as our highest good. Hope then, implies a love and desire for God for we do not hope for that in which we in no way desire. Without hope we begin to despair but how can we hope in someone if we know little or nothing about that someone?
To have true hope is to know Me.
Hope finds fulfilment in an environment of love, born of a desire for truth and goodwill.
Hope attests to the truth of faith, in the power of the goodness of God.
