Hope is no other than an expectation of those things which faith has believed to be truly promised by God.  Thus, faith believes the veracity of God.  Hope expects the manifestation of it in due time.  Faith believes Him to be our Father.  Hope expects Him always to act towards us in this character.  Faith believes that eternal life is given to us.  Hope expects it one day to be revealed.  Faith is the foundation on which hope rests.  Hope nourishes and sustains faith. – John Calvin (1509-1564)
