Hope purifies

Hope is God's power to enable us to live pure lives in a perverse and wicked world.

The hope of glory was the driving force, that made saints of old live holy and pure lives.

John said, when the Father appears we shall be like Him.

Every man, who has this hope in himself, purifies his life even as the Father is pure.

You do not cause men to live pure lives by fear, but with hope.

By teaching men, they may lose their salvation, brings fear, not hope.

Fear corrupts and makes men unholy.

Hope purifies and makes men holy.
