13Therefore prepare your minds for action; discipline yourselves; set all your hope on the grace that Jesus Christ will bring you when he is revealed. 14Like obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires that you formerly had in ignorance. 15Instead, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; 16for it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:13-16, NRSV)

What do you hope for?

What do you hope in?

Do you see the difference?

I hope we will soon be out of the shelter in place. I hope we will be able to gather together with friends and families, to return to a way of life that is not us staying in our own places and away from other people. I am an introvert and love my time alone, but I have had enough of that and need interaction. I hope this will all be over soon.

But I can not use that as the basis for my life. My hope that I trust in and cling to is Jesus. I hope in Jesus. I know that Jesus will always be with me and His grace will cover me. That is my hope. That is the basis of my life and it is because of that grace, I hope we will be together again.

What do you hope in?
