Hope is about looking forward to something better. The Bible teaches that hope in the context of our faith, is a confident expectation, based on God's promises and Jesus' death and resurrection, of the ultimate triumph of God over sin, death, and evil.
Jesus' resurrection is the foundation of our hope. According to 1 Peter 1:3, "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." The resurrection of Jesus is the basis for our hope, as it demonstrates God's power over sin and death and gives us confidence that we too can overcome through our faith in Jesus.
Hope is not wishful thinking, but a confident expectation. According to Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." The Bible teaches that hope is not a vague wish, but a confident expectation that is based on God's promises. This hope gives us the strength to persevere in difficult times, knowing that God is faithful and will bring about good in the end.
Hope is not just for the future, but for the present. According to Romans 15:13, "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." The Bible teaches that hope is not just a future promise, but a present reality. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can experience hope in the midst of difficult circumstances, knowing that God is with us and will never leave us.
Hope leads to a life of purpose and meaning. According to Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." The Bible teaches that hope gives us a sense of purpose and meaning in life, as we live in light of God's promises and seek to fulfill the plans he has for us.

Here are some Bible verses related to the hope that Jesus' sacrifice gave us in the NSV translation:
"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ." - Ephesians 1:7-9
"Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God." - Romans 5:1-2
"And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees?" - Romans 8:23-24
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." - 2 Corinthians 5:17
