Please take the time to read what the students at DCA are saying about their Bible Module this year. We are going through a group Bible Study entitled Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris. The students are taking quizzes online and usually each quiz has one short essay question they can answer. Here are some of their responses.

Quiz 2 essay question: What does it mean to put your hope in God?

Your answers: 

As mentioned earlier, hope involves a forward gaze. When we put our hope in God, we put our future in His hands; we trust in Him as our foundation. As Philippians 4:6 says–we need to abstain from anxiety, because we know the Lord will take care of His people. Hoping in God is giving Him full control of our life, allowing Him to train us now and use us in the future.

I think it means to not hope for money or fame but to hope in the fact that he will deliver you through everything you are going through and hoping in the fact of eternal life and salvation

Putting your hope in God means to put your faith and trust in Him. The idea of hope has a forward feeling to it. We can hope and trust that God is in control of everything. We can hope that he has a plan in the future. Finally we can hope that God has given us eternal life through His Son. Through this attitude of hope we can fully serve God and have a true foundation in Him.

It means really trusting him in all situations because we know that God can carry us thru to the future. everything God does and has done is for our good and his Glory. putting our hope in God means we need to be willing to do any thing God calls us to do because that is our future.

Putting your hope on god means that things like money are unstable and God is. You have faith and trust in him but also a security for the future. When you have a hopeful heart you produce generous actions.

Hoping in God means that you can lay aside all earthly materials, it means that you are putting your trust in what God has said He has done and what He will do, and it means that you will produce actions that reflect your hopeful view in Christ.

To put your hope in God is to look forward to what He will do in the future. You may not know what He is going to do, but whatever He does is His will. We have the hope that whatever He does is for our good and is all a part of His master plan.

To put your hope in Christ is to believe that he has saved us from our sins and will continue to work in your life to sanctify and cleanse you. It also entails that we have a hope that we will live for eternity with God in heaven.

 

Quiz 1 Essay Question: How do you think this Bible Module will apply to you and why?

Even just the first day was an eye-opener! I hope that the rest will do so as well! I’m actually excited about this class haha 🙂
It will apply to help me get my focus on making my foundation on the Bible and not on temporary worldly things like relationships or sports.
I think this module will apply to me just in everyday life. So often we build our lives on unstable things when God is really the only thing we should be basing our lives on.
It will give me a better perception of what my true foundation is. It will also give me a growing desire to know Christ more and to live a life that’s pleasing to Him.
This will apply to me because I want to build my life on the Word of God. Because the reason is I can see this world is hurting without God and I would like to be in a place were I can help people.
