What Is True Hope


Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

You know, at times I think we misunderstand hope. Some think it is merely optimism — choosing to see how circumstances could work for the best. But Biblical hope isn’t based off of the circumstances that we find ourselves in. Many people of faith in the Old Testament faced difficult times, not knowing if things could ever get better. But they chose to place their hope in God anyway. Even the prophets lamented of the injustice and evil that they saw in the world; and yet, they still looked to God for hope. And it was not misplaced. From the very beginning when humankind fell to sin, God had a plan. It was through Jesus. His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead brings an eternal hope of Heaven to all who would put their trust in Him alone. When we believe, we gain an everlasting hope that does not change with our circumstances. Who can you share this with today? For help, visit our website at www.sharelife.today.
