Naomi is a storyteller, speaker and a member of Springwood Presbyterian Churches. She previously served with INF in Nepal, with her husband and three sons. She is the author of 10 books for adults and children, and she particularly loves to draw people back to the hope we have in Christ. In this set of videos by Hope 103.2 FM, Naomi walks us through the big story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. In the last video she speaks about her book A Time to Hope.
1. God is the Beginning and The End
It’s easy to absorb the shakiness of life at the moment, the uncertainty. But what if this was a time to go deeper, to truly fathom the hope we have in Christ.
3. God Provided the Answer in Jesus
Throughout the Old Testament, there is a tension. God is holy and righteous, and e demands obedience, yet he is also gracious and loving. How will this tension work out in the end?
5. God is at Work to the Ends of the Earth
God longs to restore each of us. He gives us a chance to repent. And then he sends us out to serve him, and to love the world, in a thousand different, needed ways.
2. God Will Bring About His Plan and Promises
In reading Genesis, we notice hope. God is the beginning and the end, the creator of all things, sovereign over everything, and he is present, today.
4. Sin and Death Have Been Defeated
It’s amazing to read the Gospels again and imagine the person of Jesus. He is not like anyone we know. We see his humility, his upside-down grace, mercy and authority over everything.
6. Jesus is Reigning and The Story Isn’t Over
We all want to be reading the Bible more, but it can be hard for many reasons. Naomi decided to read the Bible again and write devotions as she went; the result is A Time to Hope.
