Hope - because God showed us His great love by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Through faith in His love, even in times of trial, we can have hope, and hope does not disappoint. As we humble ourselves before God, realizing what He has done on our behalf, our fear (reverence) for Him will be the beginning of true wisdom (Romans 5:1-8; Proverbs 9:10).
Change - because in Jesus Christ we can learn how to be renewed in the spirit of our mind and put on new ways of thinking and living that are worthy of the Lord. We desire to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in good works, and increasing in the knowledge of God (Ephesians 4:20-24; Colossians 1:10).
Practice - because we need to prove ourselves to be doers of God’s Word, lest we be merely hearers, forgetting and deluding ourselves. Growing in God’s love will encourage us to love others in a deeper way, bring grace and peace to their life as well as to our own (James 1:22-25, 1 John 4:7-12).
