Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD
their God. (Psalms 146:5
One woman, who had been in surgery when the bomb threat was first received, came out from under her anesthesia and realized that she was staring at the surroundings of a funeral home. She was quite concerned--until she saw other patients and had the situation explained to her.
If Christ lives, then life has meaning. There is hope even in the most difficult circumstances. Even at the very end of my rope, here is a knot I can hang on to. If Christ did defeat death, if my life goes on forever, if the gospel is true, I can live courageously, victoriously. I can overcome my fears by his grace and I can be all Jesus intends for me to be. Jesus is our rock and our hope.
Dear Jesus, thank you for giving me hope! Amen.
