It is *in hope* that we have been saved. But an object of hope is such no longer when it is present to view; for when a man has a thing before his eyes, how can he be said to hope for it?
1 Thessalonians 1:10
and to await the return from Heaven of His Son, whom He raised from among the dead--even Jesus, our Deliverer from God's coming anger.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
And may the Lord guide your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.
