What is hope? I hope my team will win? I hope I don’t lose my job? I hope I don’t get sick? When we use hope like this, it seems like a simple wish or a wish that contains a hint of desperation. The results remain uncertain. On the other hand, the Bible offers a different definition of hope. In Romans 5:5, the apostle Paul says, “And hope does not disappoint us.”
In a more uncertain world than ever, we long for a hope that won’t disappoint; and we can find this kind of hope only in Christ.
This reminds me of Anna’s recent experience on a Youth Dynamics’ trip. She said with joy, “This week will be unforgettable. For me, it was an epic adventure. Before Youth Dynamics, I had little or no relationship at all with Jesus. Today, I feel a great bond with God.” Anna found hope in Christ!
Thank you for your prayers and support that provide hope to students like Anna. I pray that in all things God will fill you with His hope!
President, Youth Dynamics
