The Case for Hope

2015 America's Best Hope Conference


In this 36-minute session from the 2015 America’s Best Hope Conference, Lee Strobel, Professor of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University and Teaching Pastor at Woodlands Church in The Woodlands, Texas, considers what it means for Christians to serve as salt and light in the marketplace today. In a culture marked by decay and despair, Lee encourages followers of Christ to embrace their role in God's work of transforming lives.

As Lee said, if you follow Jesus, you are a missionary cleverly disguised in your profession. Spreading the message of Christ begins with an abiding dependence upon God to do the life-transforming work that only He can accomplish. As you consider the lost around you, ask God to empower you to live the kind of life that causes others to thirst for Him. Marked by grace, forgiveness, and compassion, may your life shine the light of Christ in the dark places of despair.
