In times of uncertainty, Christians have a hope that overcomes the darkness. The Bible provides a great number of scriptures that talk about our hope in Christ and who we are in Christ.

The following table uses the ESV version of the Bible. I hope these scriptures help remind you of our great hope. Feel free to share and / or print for reference. The table can be sorted by verses and is searchable to help you find particular scriptures. If you have any others let me know and I will add to the table.

Romans 8:15 – For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
