    SUMMARY: Living hope replaces despair; this fall we will study “our living hope.” Hope springs from God’s great mercy. We are the people of God, who have received his great mercy (undeserved). God waited for us to come to him through baptism. Before I chose to obey God’s command of baptism, my spirit was “incubating or gestating“ in faith and thought, similar to an unborn child’s development. This development is spiritual rather than physical. God’s power is our living hope.
