Project Hope: What Is It?

     Project Hope is a ministry reaching out to both men and women in jail, the juvenile center, and hopefully someday prison in Kitsap County, Washington. Project Hopes mission is to show God’s love to everyone there.

No one is too far for God.

    1 John 4:15-21 “If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.  And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.  There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.  Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen,cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.”

    These people may seem unlovable but Christ died for us all.

No one is too far for God.

    Romans 5:6-8 “You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

    Christians, remember we were once sinners too and now alive in Christ. Why then should we rob others from this hopeful truth?

    2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
