Continuing through our series of reading plans based on the end of 1 Corinthians 13, we now come to hope. At first glance, it may seem very similar to faith. Surprisingly, it is distinct from that. Although the two words are sometimes used in the same context, hope is actually found far fewer times in the New Testament. It is also used for different reasons.
For me, the most striking is Paul’s use of the hope of the resurrection of the dead. He refers to it repeatedly in his defence of the Gospel. Although I had read the Book of Acts multiple times, I had forgotten that aspect of his preaching. In fact, it made me wonder the last time that I spoke of the subject outside of the context of worshipping God.
Perhaps you will have similar realizations as you go through this plan. I hope that you do. Like the previous one on faith, this plan is 14 days in length and averages about 10 verses per day. You can download a PDF of it by clicking here.
Our next topical reading plan will be about love.
