Jesus Today Teen Cover: Experience Hope in His Presence by Sarah Young is a beautiful hope-filled devotional. It includes 150 readings along with Scripture versus and inspirational quotes from notable figures such as Charles Spurgeon, G. K. Chesterton, George Mueller, John Calvin, and Adoniram Judson.
Jesus Today–A Message of Hope
Sarah wrote Jesus Today during a difficult period in her life of chronic illness. During this time, Jesus was her hope and prayer was her lifeline. Her mindset at the time was integral to her ability to write this devotional “from the trenches.”
What is unique about Jesus Today is that the entries are written from Jesus’ point of view–as if Jesus himself is personally speaking to each reader:
“I am the light of the world. My followers will not walk in darkness, but will have the Light of Life. Even though there is much darkness in this world, you always have access to Me. So you are never in total darkness” (p. 200).
The timeless messages in Jesus Today are comforting and encouraging. I especially like that the devotions are undated, so there is no pressure to keep up with daily entries and readers can take them at their own pace. Many of the devotions spur further thought and meditation, and they really stick with you as you go about your day. The constant reminder of hope in a world where things seem increasingly discouraging make this book a must-have.
This hardback ‘teen cover’ volume of Jesus Today is decorated beautifully, with a blue and orange color scheme, attached ribbon bookmark, and dedication page. It would make a wonderful addition to any young woman’s nightstand.
