like Jesus

Posted on by Martin Corder

Do you know the definition of hope?

hope | hōp |

1.     A feeling or a chance that something good will happen or could be true.
2.     That someone or something may be able to provide help.

So... tell me how a 17-year-old girl who has been abused, now abandoned by both parents and addicted to drugs is going to feel like 'something good will happen'? Or… how is a young man abused by his family, tossed from foster home to foster home and abused by foster parents going to think, 'someone will be able to provide help'?

I’ll tell you how… It was by someone coming to them, not just telling them about hope… but spending time, showing love and actually offering a helping hand. Someone didn’t just come and tell them about Jesus but came to be like Jesus in the middle of their pain.

You provide this kind of connection. You bring hope in the form of a loving caring person to kids who are trapped in a belief that there is no hope.
