Quoting Theology: Moltmann on Hope

" It is only in following the Christ who was raised from suffering, from a god-forsaken death and from the grave that [faith] gains an open prospect in which there is nothing more to oppress us, a view of the realm of freedom and of joy. Where the bounds that mark the end of all human hopes are broken through in the raising of the crucified one, there faith can and must expand into hope...There its hope becomes a 'passion for what is possible' (Kierkegaard), because it can be a passion for what has been made possible."
-Jurgen Moltmann, Theology of Hope

I love when people remind us that our hope in the resurrection actually has an impact on our everyday lives.
