But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

Hope is important because it plays a major role in salvation. Hope is a powerful motivator. What we love we pay attention to, and if we hope to get something from what we love, our hope will motivate us in that direction. Hope influences us either to take or not to take certain actions, depending what we hope for. We will generally do all that we can to make sure that what we hope for happens the way we forsee it happening. If we hope something does not happen, we generally do what we can to see that it does not happen. Hope motivates us to move in a certain direction and to do certain things.

What if we hope for something that is beyond our control? We will still Pray that what we hope for will still happen. If there is nothing else we can do, we will still Pray. That is how powerful hope is. It will make us do things even, subconssciously, bending us in a certain direction because our hope is strong. At the very least even if we do not Pray, we will at least wish, fret, and worry about it until something is resolved. Our hopes whether we are consciousof them or not, are constantly playing on our mind.

Hope is usually defined as a longing, a desire, or an expectation of fulfillment. It can be passive or intensely active. It can be for evil or good. It is vitally important that we have the right hope, because the Bible says, that along with Faith and Love, it is one of the three timeless and enduring eternal values. There will never be a time in eternity when hope is not on our minds! Think about that! It is that important.
