What Easter is all about – living hope!
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” I Peter 1.3-9
Living hope – believing in what we can not see yet knowing it exists.
Living hope – looking forward with desire and confidence.
Living hope – why Jesus came and what Easter is all about!
Because of the cross and Christ’s resurrection power, we now have living hope to meet our Savior face to face one day for all eternity.
That is something to celebrate!
That is something to contemplate!
That is what this Easter season is all about!
If you have yet to make Jesus Lord, simply invite Him into your heart and ask to be forgiven. I promise you won’t regret that decision and the living hope within will rise up and help you too…
