Do You Need Your Hope Restored?

BCC StaffFor Those Giving Help, For Those Seeking Hope1 Comment

Restored HOPE is a desperate need of our world today. Doesn’t someone you know need hope restored? Do you?
Dr. Ron Allchin, D. Min. shares how to restore hope and what Biblical Counseling Center is doing this year to restore hope, namely. . . .
1. Training churches in the U.S. and overseas to care for people.
2. Counseling the hurting to believe the Word of God and acting upon it.
On Friday, April 24, hundreds will gather at BCC’s Annual Celebration Banquet to celebrate HOPE Restored! We’ll post photos at our Facebook Page next week.

What Is Hope?

Dr. Allchin says, “Our hope is the assurance that what God says in his Word will happen.” A hope-filled verse is 1 Corinthians 10:13 because it helps us see that God is for us. When we are tempted to go the wrong way, He provides an escape. The Holy Spirit empowers all of us Christians to choose rightly.
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13, ESV
“God never gives up on us,” Dr. Allchin shares. “On first look it may appear that there’s no way out. But God says he provides one. We can be certain there is a way of escape. This gives us hope.”
Believing God is the first step to restoring hope. The second step is essential too: Act on your hope in God.
1. Believe God.
2. Act on your hope in God. 

Act on Your Hope

Dr. Allchin emphasizes action: “Believe the Word of God and act upon it.” When you act upon your belief, no matter how you feel, among the good results is hope and more hope.

This action of faith and hope describes the vibrant attitude of Pastor Dani Rodriquez, the keynote speaker at BCC’s Annual Spring Celebration Banquet in greater Chicago. 

When Dr. and Sherry Allchin brought biblical counseling to Cuba a decade ago, they met Pastor Rodriquez, who knew immediately that the Lord was calling him to biblical counseling ministry. He acted as their translator while the Allchins trained pastors and seminary students. “I saw how the counsel of the Word changed the hearts and lives of the Cuban people, whom I dearly love, and was grieved to see the sin and suffering in so many lives,” Pastor Rodriquez says. “We needed more counselors who could help hurting people to find hope and joy in the Lord. This training filled that gap in Cuba.and training throughout his home country.”

Pastor Rodriquez restores hope to the pastors and students he trains, and they restore hope to the hurting people in Cuba. They are a living testimony of serving the whole body with resources that enable others to care for the hurting and hopeless everywhere.

These trained pastors and students have counseled untold numbers of hurting Cubans, resulting in heart change and life change.
