Overview

Can you guess how many sermons have been preached from the Keswick platform? Almost 6,500!

For over 140 years, the Convention in the English Lake District has welcomed gifted expositors from all over the world. Our archive is a treasure trove of sermons preached on every book of the Bible.

This series is an invitation to mine that treasure. It takes talks from the Bible Reading series given by well-loved Keswick speakers, past and present, and reformats them into daily devotionals. Where necessary the language has been updated but, on the whole, it is the message you would have heard had you been listening in the tent on Skiddaw Street. Each day of the devotional ends with a fresh section of application designed to help you apply God’s Word to your own life and situation.

Whether you are a Convention regular or have never been to Keswick, this Food for the Journey series is a unique opportunity to study the Scriptures with a Bible teacher by your side. Each book was designed to fit in your jacket pocket or handbag so you can read it anywhere—over the breakfast table, on the commute into work or college, while you are waiting in your car, over your lunch break or in bed at night. Wherever life’s journey takes you, time in God’s Word is vital nourishment for your spiritual journey.

Our prayer is that these devotionals become your daily feast, a nourishing opportunity to meet with God through his Word. Read, meditate, apply and pray through the Scriptures given for each day, and allow God’s truths to take root and transform your life.

How do the wilderness years between Egypt and the land of promise connect with believers in today’s world?

The message of God’s covenant love gives Numbers a distinctive quality and a direct relevance for believers in our uncertain world. This Bible study will lead readers through thirty days of study.

If the book of Numbers is a bit of a blank in your mental map of the Bible, then this is a great place to start. Thirty short readings unfold its message, point us to Christ and connect to our lives. Again and again we see how God preserves his people despite our unfaithfulness. The result is comfort and hope built on the rock-solid grounds of God’s promises and his mercy

In the midst of bad news, can there be any hope?

The story of Ruth takes place when the Israelites are living in the Promised Land. But instead of obeying God, they are rebelling against his rule. When they cry for deliverance, God sends them a judge. The judge dies, and the people become even more corrupt than their ancestors. Brutality and immorality abound. We focus on an ordinary woman called Naomi and her family. We witness her joys and sorrows, but more importantly, God’s amazing providence in her situation.

The book of Ruth is written into a whirl of social, religious, and moral chaos. It is a reminder that there is hope, that a remnant of true faith remains, and that God continues to work in the lives of ordinary people. The book points forward to King David who would lead the people wisely. But ultimately it points to Jesus, the great Son of David—the hope of nations, the light of the world, and the prince of peace.

Ezekiel ben Buzi would never forget his thirtieth birthday.

He had been trained as a priest and brought up to believe that at this age his life’s work would begin. For years he had anticipated this moment when he would be ordained and eligible to serve in the temple.

But instead of being in Jerusalem, he was a captive in Babylon.

Instead of being a priest, he was called by God to be a prophet. Instead of serving in the temple, he was surrounded by a plethora of pagan gods.

But on his thirtieth birthday, Ezekiel received a vision from God... This timely vision confronted the Jews with their sinfulness and the necessity of divine judgement. It also reminded them of God’s sovereignty and the promise of future restoration.

Our lives, like Ezekiel’s, may have turned out differently from how we had expected they would. Can we keep on serving God in turbulent times, trusting God’s sovereignty, and striving for holiness with the Holy Spirit’s help and power?

The message of Ezekiel has profound importance for today. In these simple but profound devotional thoughts, Liam Goligher cuts to the heart in two ways. First, he gets to the heart of the truth that we find in Ezekiel. Second, he cuts to the heart of the human longing for God. These words inspire, challenge and comfort in equal measure. They remind us that God is closer than we think and that hope is deeper than we could imagine.

Liam Goligher is senior minster at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. He previously pastored Duke Street Baptist Church in London. He studied in Belfast and has pastored churches in Ireland, Canada, and his native Scotland.

Habakkuk

Who is in control? The sustained threat from rogue states, international terrorism, religious extremists, and moral confusion arising from liberal views of all kinds begs the question: what is happening to our world?

Is no one in control? This is a deep vulnerability that many people express. And not simply in global events. Our own personal world often seems out of control as we reel from suffering, family tragedies, and unanswered prayers. The prophet Habakkuk knew that God was in control but, like us, his personal experience seemed to contradict this and he wrestled with the tension.

This book is a dialogue between the prophet and God. Habakkuk confronts God with his confusion and, in doing so, he expresses the voice of the godly in Judah and he speaks for us. We join in the journey from “why?” to worship.

We all wrestle with the mysterious purposes of God in our lives and in the lives of those we love. This is the theme of the preaching of Habakkuk. With his usual clarity, warmth and contemporary application, Jonathan Lamb takes us to the heart of this book. Elizabeth McQuoid has adapted Jonathan’s material so that it will enrich your daily devotions and warm your heart. I enthusiastically recommend this book

Troubled. Confused. Uncertain. After 3 years with Jesus, there was so much the disciples didn’t understand. They were still reeling from the news that someone in their inner circle would betray the Lord. Worse still was Jesus’s prediction that their fiery and courageous friend Peter would deny him, and that his death was imminent. It seemed unthinkable.

What would Jesus say to them? What comfort could he possibly offer? Reclining around the meal table, Jesus answered questions, taught and prayed for his disciples. In this final tutorial, he wanted to remind them of his love and faithfulness. Regardless of what was to come, he was in complete control, and events would unfold according to his sovereign plan.

In Romans 5-8 Paul speaks passionately of the love of God for mankind and the gift he offered us by sending Christ as our savior.

In this 30-day devotional, beloved Bible teacher John Stott unpacks these passages and their full meaning, to show us how Paul’s words, written nearly two thousand years ago, are still full of meaning and inspiration for Christians today.

As you’d expect, John Stott explains these challenging chapters with great clarity. He enables us to get our heads around core truths for the Christian journey and leads us into praise and thankfulness to the Jesus of the gospel.

Putting Jesus in his place. This was the issue with which the church at Colossae wrestled. There was a plethora of other gods and spiritual beings to worship. The city was rife with syncretism, the belief that you can worship Jesus but need to supplement your faith by turning to other powers and authorities. If you got sick or wanted your business to flourish, surely it was expedient to pay allegiance to these other powers and not just Jesus? In Colossae Jesus was eminent. He had status. The fundamental question was: Is he pre-eminent? Jesus was important, just not all-important; adequate but not totally sufficient for every need.

Writing from a prison cell in Rome, Paul warns these new believers of the danger of turning to another Jesus. If they failed to heed his warning, their faith would unravel.

This letter has much to say to Christians today. It will provide challenge, inspiration, and a renewed focus to keep on living for Christ in our generation.

Biblical, lively, practical... a terrific resource for everyone wanting to get to grips with Paul’s message to the Colossians

1 Thessalonians

As we spend 30 days in 1 Thessalonians with Alec Motyer, we hear the timeless encouragement to “keep on keeping on”, surely a message as relevant today as when it was first written.

Paul visited Thessalonica on his second mission trip, along with his companions Silas and Timothy. Unfortunately, his time there was cut short after only four or five weeks when Paul was hounded out of the city. But amazingly, by this time, a fledgling church had already formed!

Paul writes to the new believers in order to fill in details and explain misunderstandings about the second coming, to urge the Christians to live well in community, and to give further instructions about godly living, all the while encouraging them to press on in holiness in spite of opposition.

J. Alec Motyer (1924–2016) was a renowned Old Testament pastor and scholar. With extensive experience in parish ministry, he was principal of Trinity College in Bristol, England, and was well known as a Bible expositor. His books include The Prophecy of Isaiah, and he was the Old Testament editor of The Bible Speaks Today commentary series.

As we spend 30 days in 2 Timothy with Michael Baughen, we focus on Paul’s final words. Paul is in prison, near to death, dictating this letter to Luke for his young friend Timothy. As he sits chained to a Roman soldier, Paul’s passion for the gospel shines out. He uses his farewell message to urge Timothy to maintain his focus on the fundamentals of the faith.

This intensely personal letter allows us to hear Paul’s last words and ask ourselves about the legacy that we will one day leave to others.

Hebrews was written to address some of the fundamental misunderstandings that the Jewish people had about Jesus. This (unknown) author is correcting their ignorance of who Jesus was, and explaining how he completes and fulfils Israel’s history, law, ceremonial rituals, and priesthood. And this is highly relevant today.

We too can have a wrong understanding of Jesus and his work. We may do things in his name but have become detached from him. We are invited to “fix our eyes on Jesus.” He is the ultimate and final expression of truth. He is absolutely central in our Christian lives.

Insightful, pastoral, warm and encouraging. Charles has a gift for mining the gold and making it glitter.

—Martin Salter, Associate Pastor, Grace Community Church, Bedford

These daily devotional readings will help Christians to understand and enjoy the book of Hebrews, and to rejoice afresh in the Lord Jesus Christ and all that he has done for them. Charles Price unpacks the Old Testament typology of the letter with brevity and clarity, and shows how the truths it teaches strengthen our faith and apply to our daily lives. Anyone who uses this guide will be blessed and motivated to press on in the Christian life with eyes firmly fixed on the eternal glory to come.

As leader of the Jerusalem church, what words of encouragement would James write to these persecuted Christians?

Perhaps a little surprisingly, his key message was: faith works. Genuine belief inevitably transforms our speech, suffering, compassion for the poor, humility, prayers, priorities, and, frankly, every other aspect of life. In 5 chapters James introduces and briefly touches upon a whole variety of issues that concern the new believers. In a simple, forthright style he urges them to live out their faith, knowing that God’s grace is sufficient for every trial and that there is a value and purpose to their suffering.

James’ own life illustrated this message. He had grown up with Jesus and was naturally skeptical about his brother’s Messianic claims. But a post-resurrection encounter with Jesus revolutionized his life. He was transformed from a vocal critic into a key leader of the early church and prime mover in the Jerusalem Council (Acts 15).

Does the church have a future?

Across the generations troubled Christians have often asked this question. Even as early as the end of the first century the future of the church hung in the balance. False teaching, internal division, and persecution were rife. Emperor Domitian had exiled the apostle John, probably in his 90s, on the island of Patmos. You can imagine John, pacing up and down the island at night, looking across the sea to the cities on the shore, wondering, “Does the church have a future?”

Into this situation the Lord comes and makes these glorious revelations. He gives John this vision and tells him to write to the seven churches of Asia Minor, in the eastern part of the Roman Empire, in what is now called Turkey.

To each of these churches Jesus says, “I know... I know your hopes and dreams, your faults and failings, your joys and sorrows, your temptations and frustrations.” Jesus knew each church, and so he could speak wisely and truthfully into each circumstance. He said some hard things to shake the believers out of their apathy. He also spoke words of comfort. The letter ends by pointing the believers to heaven, a reminder that despite their present struggles, ultimately they are on the side of victory.

Today the church still faces internal division, opposition and persecution. It is understandable that some believers ask, “Does the church have a future?”

The answer is the same as it always has been. Absolutely.

Christian believers have always found the opening chapters of Revelation a wonderful source of devotional encouragement. These notes from Paul Mallard provide a brilliantly accessible resource that will profit believers at any stage of their Christian lives.
