"He shall see the labour of His soul, and be satisfied", prophesied Isaiah. His prophecy was fulfilled by the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus, with wonderful far-reaching results. They are the fruit of the labour of Jesus: closely associated with our current and future blessing. The author explores some of this glorious fruit in this book.
To know God better is a compelling reason to study Bible themes from many different angles. The author looks at some word pictures that illustrate the great consequences of Christ's death and resurrection. His desire is that the reader might see something of Christ's wonderful character and consider what He delights in; and, as a result, have a renewed and strengthened affection for the Lord Jesus as they think about the fruit of His work. The focus of this book has been restricted to consider some of the ways in which the Lord Jesus relates to us individually, with the aim of encouraging a greater appreciation of His love to us. Whilst it is intended to be an encouragement to Christians, the author trusts that it may also be helpful to those who do not yet know the Lord Jesus in a personal way, but are curious to find out more.

Yves-Yannick Ford was born in 1969 to a Swiss mother and a British father. He was brought up in Buckinghamshire, UK. As a young man during his undergraduate studies, he found true peace and assurance of God's salvation through reading and re-reading the Epistle to the Romans in the New Testament, and he is keen for others to read the Bible and experience for themselves its life-changing power. Yannick now lives in Kent, UK, where he works as a scientist. He is married to Rachel, and has two sons and two daughters.
