By PETER SAWYER
Hope is the fuel for life. It keeps us going. People place their hope in different things—bank accounts, political parties and families. My hope is the Gospel. Gospel means “good news.” I believe there is a God who is good. And while I am evil, and deserve to suffer eternal punishment when I die, God allows me to be spared if I believe in his son—Jesus. Jesus took the punishment I deserve when he died on a cross 2,000 years ago.
