Here are nine of his thoughts on hope:
  1. “You’re as young as your dreams, and as old as your cynicism.”
  2. “It’s Friday … but Sunday’s coming!” This has become Campolo’s “trademark” message, according to his website, which said he is trying to “show how surrendering to Christ enables individuals to have their personal, spiritual and psychological needs met.” 
  3. “Often, we ignore the fact that our spiritual condition and psychological state of mind are highly affected by what is happening to us physically. Sometimes depression is simply the result of exhaustion.”
  4. “It is hard to say what the future holds, but this is probable – it won't be just like the past.”
  5. “Our call is to be God’s agents, to rescue not only the human race but the whole of creation.”
  6. “What I am trying to say is that Jesus who incarnated God 2,000 years ago is mystically present and waiting to be discovered in EVERY person you and I encounter.”
  7. “Jesus came into the world not to condemn the world, but to save the world. When we come with condemnation, we are not coming with good news about Jesus but laying the bad news on people.”
  8. “If you’re full of the Holy Spirit, you will become Jesus for people.”
  9. “Jesus never says to the poor: ‘come find the church.’ but he says to those of us in the church: ‘go into the world and find the poor, hungry, homeless, imprisoned.’”
  10. “Hope is not wishful thinking. It’s much more than that. Hope is the confidence that if you do God’s will, that God will keep his promises to you.”
