It’s Easter Week. The week we celebrate our Savior. The week we remember His sacrifice on the cross for our sins. The week we remember His mighty triumph over sin and death. With Easter upon us, I’ve been contemplating the Resurrection.
The Resurrection is central to Christianity. It sets us apart from other religions. Most every religion has a central figure, but only in Christianity do we find the power to conquer death, the power to live again.
And that is where we, as Christians, find hope.
We have hope for eternal life with our Savior. We have hope that we will one day be reunited with our loved ones who have passed from this temporal life into eternity. We have hope that one day every tear will be wiped away, there will be no more sadness or sorrow. We have hope that one day we will be in the presence of the One who loved us enough to die for us.
Life is full of losses and pain. We are told in John 16:33 that we will have trouble in this world. But, Christ follows that up with the promise that we can have hope because He has overcome the world!
I don’t know what you are facing this beautiful upcoming Easter weekend. I don’t know if you are dealing with your sin or the sin of someone else. I don’t know if you are facing betrayal or hurt or pain. I don’t know if you feel like you are dead. But, I do know that the One who died on a cross many years ago for your sins, has the power to resurrect you to a full and abundant life right here on this earth.
Don’t give up! Life is available to all who seek Jesus!
Happy Resurrection Week!
