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
Exercising my authority does not increase my status or value anymore than submitting to authority reduces my status or value. (Quoted by Pastor John Smith)
Some people have difficulty dealing with authority. They expect instant compliance with their demands because they feel such conformity makes them superior and of greater importance. On the other hand, there are some who feel demeaned and of less value than others if they too readily yield to authority. In reality, of course, John Smith is right.
There is no authority except that which God has established. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended (Romans 13:1, 3).
"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."
