For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
We do not receive all the benefits of our salvation at the moment of conversion. From the moment we received Jesus Christ as our Saviour, we look forward to full and final deliverance from sin, suffering, diseases, and death. If we already had these blessings, we would not be hoping for them. We only hope for what we do not have and what it is in the future.
