“Our hope, no matter where we may be today, is in the transforming truth of Easter.”
Easter, the real Easter, was not just one event in time that occurred long ago. Christ's resurrection spanned the ages and has eternal consequences. It applies to you and me today just as much as it did to Christ's followers on Easter morning. It also applies to the future. Our hope, no matter where we may be today, is in the transforming truth of Easter. Ultimately, all Good Fridays will lead to joyful Easter mornings if we cling to Christ. Every crucifixion in this life can end with a resurrection when we depend upon the finished work of Jesus! Whether you are in a season of hardship, fear, quarantine, rejoicing or a mix of both, the key is to keep walking in faith, one step at a time. Only the risen Christ can guide us through the foggy path of life. And when our final Easter morning arrives, we'll finally see with clarity that the journey was well worth it.
Father, help me to dwell on You first and foremost, not my current circumstances.
Our hope is found in Christ Jesus. Our fears, our anxieties, our pain, our sin, he will gladly take. Have you given these all to Him? If not give them to Him today, and live with the joy that only comes through Christ Jesus.
“but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
