"Ordinarily, when we express hope, we are expressing uncertainty. We may say ' hope the Vikings have a good season,' or, 'I hope my kids do well in school,' etc.. But this is not the distinctive biblical meaning of hope."
"The settling presence of the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ life indicated the start of His ministry and illustrates for us how we should respond to the presence of the Holy Spirit in our own lives. The Holy Spirit desires to be with us at all times but requires us to be conscious of His presence. Our everyday life should change as a result."
