1. "But I know that if God's mercy didn't exist, there would be no hope. No matter how good we tried to be, we would be punished because of our sins." 

2. "True faith means holding nothing back; it bets everything on the hope of eternity." 

3. "When Christians sacrifice and give wildly to the poor, that is truly a light that glimmers. The Bible teaches that the church is to be that light, that sign of hope, in an increasingly dark and hopeless world."

4. In his book, Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit, Chan writes of his hope for Christians. "I hope we can go beyond our current understanding of the Holy Spirit and begin to commune openly … that our experience with Him would be day by day, even moment by moment."

From his book: Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples

5. "Let's not place our hope in clever sales tactics. Let's not give up on Jesus' strategy of reaching people simply because it feels impossible at times."

6. "We should honor Christ in our hearts and we should be ready to explain our hope."

7. "If your church does not pursue God's mission, then your community misses out on being exposed to the hope that God offers them in the Bible."

8. "There are people around the world who desperately need hope, healing and salvation but who don't have access to the message of redemption."

From his book: You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity

9. "You may think that you are weak. You may think there is no hope. You may think that you should always feel like obeying God but you shouldn't believe everything you think."

10. "Ask God to restore hope in your life."
