“Why Should I Hope?”

Why Should I Hope? This is a question on the minds of many teenagers today. Offering words of encouragement, this unit will help youth explore hope and faith, hope and sin, hope and failure, and hope and the Christian life.

Session One explores how faith in God affects our ability to hope. Hope ebbs and flows in our life like a current. We often do not pay attention to where hope come from or where it goes. Let us hope to provide opportunities for you to ask big questions, to step into deeper faith waters, or to encounter God in new ways.

Session Two wonders, “How does one hope when things are hard?” This session explores a passage in Jeremiah that concerns a group of God’s people who felt God was against them. God, however, plans for their welfare, not their harm. We need to remember that God is for us as well, not against us, no matter how bad things may look.

Session Three discusses how people can continue to hope even after they have made a mistake. Can hope be defeated?

Session Four shows how hope spurs one to act, and acting upon a hope leads to fruition. How does hope affect what we do?
