The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
1 Timothy 1:1 (Christ “is our hope.” You don’t get more personal than that.)
Titus 2:13 (Christ is “the blessed hope” – a particularly felicitious, as well as personal, term for our Lord.)
Connect Colossians 2:1-3 with Colossians 3:1-4 and see that because the treasures spoken of are hidden in Him, He Himself is, appropriately enough, the focal point of our intentions.
See also, if you care to, these scriptures on the subject of hope.
