If you talk to people today it seams that hope is in short supply. People are worried about everything; the state of the economy, the government, their job, their family, the war or wars, natural disaster you name it you can find someone worried about it. And I can’t help to think, may be the reason for all the worry is that we have misplaced our hope??????
Frederick Buechner said “Resurrection means the worst thing is never the last thing”
It’s an interesting thought. what if you could have a resurrection in any area of your life, what would you choose? so many people have given up on the hope of a resurrection so they stay in a DEAD situation, why attend a burial when you could have a resurrection??? are you willing to walk out of the “tomb” you dug? We (the body of Christ) often forget about the power of the resurrection, that the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us, in you.
The resurrection validates everything Jesus said and did!
His message-Love God/Love people Mark 12:29,30
His identity-Iam the bread of life…. John 6:35
I am the resurrection…..John 11:25
I am the way…….John 14:6
His death Acts 2:22,23 and I cor 15:3-6
In Christ we have hope for something better, A Resurrection of all thats dead in your life starts with Jesus Christ He is worthy of your Hope, YOU can trust Him to care for you. You may not know what to do, but he does. and thats the way I see it in my market.
