May God guide, direct and uphold us with His righteous hand, as we stay steadfast in our hope of things unseen...preserved by our faith in our Sovereign and Eternal Savior, Jesus Christ...
For in this hope we were saved; but hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he can already see?
2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
But My righteous one will live by faith; and if he shrinks back, I will take no pleasure in him."
Now faith is the assurance of what we hope for and the certainty of what we do not see.
For the gospel reveals the righteousness of God that comes by faith from start to finish, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."
And this righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no distinction.
Truly, truly, I tell you, he who believes has eternal life.
