Most of us get hope all wrong. We hope for better health, a generous pay rise or good grades for our children. Our wishful thinking may or may not have a good outcome, but when it does, it never leaves us satisfied. This 30-day devotional in the Food for the Journey series shows us that Christian hope, by contrast, is guaranteed and eternal, dealing with certainties: Christ's death for us, his forgiveness of sin and our hope of heaven when we die. Covering passages from Matthew, 1 Peter, Romans, 2 Corinthians, 1 Thessalonians and Revelation, in this devotional some of the Keswick Convention’s most beloved preachers – including Don Carson, Ray Ortlund and Jonathan Lamb – unpack the Bible’s teaching on hope. In self-contained daily devotions they show us how we can enjoy the pleasures of earth knowing that they point to the far greater delights we'll experience one day in God's presence. In a small, easily portable format, Hope is perfect for carrying around with you on the go. Like all the Food for the Journey books, its undated format means you can start and finish at any time of the year, and work through it at your own pace. Whether you are looking to renew your own sense of hope and wonder at God’s goodness, or want to dig more deeply into what the Bible teaches us about hope, this little devotional is packed full of wisdom that will help strengthen your faith in your walk with Christ. 'The hope set before us' is far greater than we can ever imagine. This devotional shows the glorious contours of our inexhaustible hope, offering encouragement and reassurance, whatever our present circumstances may be.
With a perfect blend of theological rigour, careful exposition, deep insights and pastoral applications, these devotionals are a cut above the rest. They manage to be short and simple, yet packed with thought-provoking truths to stretch you and deepen your walk with the Lord. -- Linda Allcock * author * Christians live in the grubbiness and ordinariness of today, but with one foot in the future, glorious beyond words. Too often we fail to connect the two. This short but varied series of devotions helps us to live now in the light of Christ's promises for tomorrow. Each one has helped me to 'look forward to the day of God and speed its coming' (2 Peter 3.12). -- Adrian Reynolds * pastor, author, speaker and Head of National Ministries, Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches *
