787. Hope will never cause shame
Hope will never cause shame – 2 Corinthians 3:18, Romans 5:1-5
2 Corinthians 3:18 (modern English version)
18 But we all, seeing the glory of the Lord with unveiled faces, as in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord.
5 Therefore being justified (set forth as righteous) by (out from) faith (believing), we have peace (state of undisturbed well being) with (out from) God through (the dividing line) our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By (the dividing line) whom
also we have (obtained) access (the introduction) also by (the dividing line) faith into (motion to) this grace (a kind, affectionate, pleasing nature and inclining disposition) wherein (in which) we stand, and rejoice (speak loud, boast, vaunt oneself) in (resting within) hope (expectations of future good) of the glory (a real knowledge of a matter, that which attracts attention) of God.
3 And not only so, but we glory (rejoice also) in (resting within) tribulations (pressure, compression, hence pressure from evil, affliction, stress) also: knowing that tribulation worketh (effects) patience (patient enduring);
4 And patience (patient enduring), experience (the state of being tried or having been tried); and experience (the state of being tried or having been tried), hope (expectations of future good):
5 And hope (expectations of future good) maketh not ashamed (cause shame); because the love (agape) of God is shed abroad (to shed blood, to pour out, to kill) in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which
is (was) given unto us.
