“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
Faith and hope, by definition, are spiritual possessions in this life only. There will be no need for either in eternity. If you know God, you will no longer need to trust Him for things unseen in Heaven. You will no longer need to long for promises unfulfilled. You will have all of Him in Glory and need nothing. You will no longer have to hope for promises yet to come as all will have come to pass.
If you go to Hell, the faith that would have saved you is no longer available. The hope that would have inspired, fueled and driven you until its realization will be nonexistent, as there will no longer be anything to look forward to. But love – the very personification of God – for the child of God, will be in ever-basking, everlasting reality and glory.
