The Cross and the God of Hope

by T. Austin-Sparks

Recorded Nov 1958

"God is the God of Hope, even when you look at Calvary, and all that is going on there, and see the One there, and hear His bitter cry. If you understand it, and if you look at history - Adam's sin, and fall, and all that in which the race was involved thereby, all the tragedy and the anguish and the passion and the evil of the generations - and see why God, not only allowed it, but had to establish that regime, issuing in despair - the answer, strange to say, is: He is the God of Hope. That is His way of hope, and His only way of hope."

Rom 15:13
