Hope Is an Appetizer
I’ve batted around a few different titles for my book about Faith Alive and gotten a variety of responses. Regardless of which title is eventually chosen, the word HOPE needs to be part of it. Why? Because Faith Alive is synonymous with hope. Both are appetizers of things to come. They are a first course, sample, and sneak preview of something bigger than the here and now, where God heals us from all affliction. No more illness, no more poverty, no more violence, no more pain. May we have a hunger—even a craving—for the main course.
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 10:23 NIV)
