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
How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. (George Washington Carver, 19th century American botanist and inventor)
That sounds like very sound advice, encouraging us to be less self-centered and more aware of the needs of those around us. The most gripping idea, however, is what Carver went on to say, “Because someday in life you will have been all of these.” It reminds us again that we should be alert and open to others and the stage of life where they might need our help.
And we urge you . . . [to] help the weak, be patient with everyone (1 Thessalonians 5:14). God . . . will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them (Hebrews 6:10).
"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."
