Abstract

The purpose of this study is to interpret 1 Peter 1:3-12 for the young generation in the early adult stage who have lost hope due to challenges for their time, namely the quarter-life Crisis in understanding what and what form of hope is expected. They can find in Christ. This paper uses a descriptive qualitative research method by collecting data through library research to examine the meaning of hope in Christ from 1 Peter 1:3-6 and find its relevance to the despair of the young generation in the early adult stage caused by the Quarter-Life Crisis. The primary data source that the author uses is Peter's writings in 1 Peter 1:3-6, books, documents, and research related to the phenomenon of mental disorders. Quarter-Life Crisis can be interpreted as a response to mounting instability, continuous change, too many choices, and feelings of panic and helplessness that usually appear in early adulthood. In this discussion, the author explains what kind of hope is in the exegesis of 1 Peter 1:3-6 and uses the results of psychological research that have been described previously to connect young adults who experience depression due to QLC with the hope that is in Christ. It is found that the hope is in Christ, the hope that lives, which will not be shaken, and is certain. This needs to be studied again and reinterpreted by young adults who are experiencing QLC. One other form of treatment in the world of psychology to overcome QLC is by reflection, namely asking themselves who they are, what they want, what their vision is, and so on
