HOPE: The basic definition of HOPE is; “The belief that something good may happen.”Hope is that intangible that has a direct influence / bearing on the tangible. Proverbs13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when desires come, they are a tree of life.” Hebrews 6:19 says, “Hope is the anchor of our souls.” Romans 15:13 is our cap stone verse for 2014. “Now may the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” May it be said of us at EFC – that ECF is a “Place of Hope” and that we are a people of promise! AMEN!!!
