The Message of Hope

Growing up in a Christian family has meant that I don’t remember being told the Gospel for the first time. It’s something I’ve just grown up always knowing. But doing Morgan’s exercise at Chapel last week was such a great opportunity to think about how my understanding of the gospel has developed. At its core, the gospel to me has always been the message of Hope. Knowing that I was created by a God who loves me encourages and motivates how I live my life. The hope that the more I learn about who God is, and let that grow and shape me, the more I will become the person I was created to be.


I am fearfully and wonderfully made by a God who loves

a God who created the entire cosmos out of love

a God who gifted a world of wonder and beauty out of love

a God who gives endlessly and tirelessly out of love

a God who made the ultimate sacrifice out of love

a God who forgives continually out of love

a God who equips, restores, and provides out of love

a God who is steadfast and unwavering out of love

a God who is present, now and always, out of love


because of God’s love for me, I can be more

I will look for light in the darkness because God loves me

I will trust even when I don’t understand because God loves me

I will seek to love others because God loves me

I will care for plight of our environment because God loves me

I will fight for issues of injustice because God loves me

I will speak out against evil because God loves me

I will search for truth and understanding because God loves me

I will share this message of hope because God loves me.

Life and ministry with people on the margins

Carey Conversations seek to demonstrate how the Bible and theology can speak to the complex issues facing the church today. The next conversation takes place next week and features Bob and Gracie Ekbald, founders of Tierra Nueva (New Earth) in Washington, a ministry that seeks liberation and transformation. 

Bob and Gracie have a deep sense of call to live and minister with people whom mainstream society excludes--migrants, prisoners, addicts, gang members. All of us who long for a more authentic participation in Jesus’ ministry of love, justice and liberation will be inspired as we explore with Bob and Gracie what they have learned as they have followed Jesus to the margins. Learn more about this Carey Conversation on our website.

When: 9 June
Where: Carey Baptist College
  • 7.30pm Mihi 
  • 7.45pm Interview with Bob and Gracie Ekbald
