'It would be well for us to spend a thoughtful hour each day in contemplation of the life of Christ. We should take it point by point, and let the imagination grasp each scene, especially the closing ones. As we thus dwell upon His great sacrifice for us, our confidence in Him will be more constant, our love will be quickened, and we shall be more deeply imbued with His spirit.'--Desire of Ages, p. 83.
As precious as the story of Jesus is to each of us, our daily lives keep us so busy that it's hard to carve out the time we would like to spend learning about Him. It's hard to find an hour--a thoughtful hour--reading and studying the gospel accounts of His life.
That's why this little book exists. It is designed to make the thoughtful hour easier, to give a little structure and focus to a study of the life of Christ. Whether you work through the pages as part of a study group or on your own, you will find a fresh look at the gospel story. The questions can be answered as part of a discussion or in your own heart as you read in thoughtful consideration.
In A Thoughtful Hour, Jerry D. Thomas has masterfully captured the essence of the final chapters of The Desire of Ages and developed study guides to accompany his devotional thoughts. At a time when the Seventh-day Adventist Church is emphasizing revival, this material can be powerfully used by the Holy Spirit to make a difference.
Revival is the reawakening of the spiritual longings of the soul. The most effective way to foster revival is by a deeper appreciation for the Christ of Calvary. Looking to Jesus on the cross, we are changed. This is why I am so enthusiastic about A Thoughtful Hour. As you meditate on the life of Christ and consider its closing scenes, your own life will be changed. Ask the Holy Spirit to impress the truths you read upon your heart. It will lead you into an encounter with Jesus that is beyond what you can imagine. --Mark Finley
