Jesus encouraged his followers to “always pray and never lose hope” (Luke 18:1). Never lose hope? Never be fainthearted? Never feel overwhelmed? Never get sucked into the sewer of despair?

He wants us to “abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).” Abound…what an extraordinary verb to use with hope.
