To find out more about the quarter, read what Pastor Steve Osborn, general editor, has to say:
I remember several years ago at our US & Canada SDB General Conference sessions, some of our brothers and sis-ters with Jamaican heritage taught us a song called, “Better Days are Coming.” It is a song of great hope and joy, serving to lift your spirit from present circumstances and fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfector of our Faith who brings hope into every situation.
Hope can be a delicate thing—easily destroyed and dif-ficult to restore. Yet it has always been one of the most treasured qualities of God’s people. Throughout Scripture, God’s people faced dark and perilous times on numerous occassions. Through it all, God’s promises would come ringing through the darkness as a beacon of hope, promising that no matter how bad things might have looked, better days were coming.
The theme for this quarter’s volume, “Sustaining Hope,” reminds us of how God has always provided hope for His people by reminding us of how He carried His people through some of the most difficult times in their history. From the prophecies of Jeremiah, Habakkuk, Ezekiel, and Isaiah to the experiences of Job and David, God has always promised to carry us through our trials and bring us through to better times. Ultimately, all of these promises of hope pointed forward to our Ultimate Hope, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
My prayer is that in studying these great and precious promises from God to His people, you, too, will be comforted and encouraged in whatever circumstances you are currently going through.
To God be the glory,
