God of Hope is searching the globe for people willing to join our mission to spread the gospel and become “persons of peace” (Luke 10:6). “Persons of peace” bring honor to the name of Jesus by faithfully sharing the gospel in a gentle and respectful way. The testimony of Jesus is that there is but one true God. We want to help others experience the peace of having Jesus in their lives, being reconciled with God and having the hope of eternal life.
Be a Hope Circle “person of peace.” Pray for, listen to and walk with one non-religious family member, friend or acquaintance who is in crisis, doesn’t know God is real or there is life after death and tell them stories about Jesus, who he is, what he did, why it matters and why you believe.
Today's Stop and Think
I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself. (Robert E. Lee, Civil War general)
It’s a frightening sight to see someone out of control, a person who, perhaps, is addicted to a dangerous substance that takes control of the user. Others just can’t control their appetites or their temper. They are the people, as Lee suggests, you don’t want to be in a leadership role, where they have authority over others. Self-control is an essential requisite for leaders.
Now the [leader] is to be above reproach . . . temperate, self-controlled, respectable . . . (1 Timothy 3:2).
"God of Hope will reach many souls and make a huge difference in believer's and non-believers' lives. I've been involved in many Christian projects: this is the best one yet!"

"God of Hope is a compelling series of stories that bear witness to the presence and power of God, who is our hope. The creative retelling of the biblical story is historically accurate and theologically faithful."
