Terrorism, politics, illness, heartbreak, loss…
Sometimes this broken world feels too painful. Too hard.
And I remember Solomon’s words:
History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Ecclesiastes 1:9
No, I’m not trying to totally depress you this Good Friday; especially when I promised you hope.
Jesus stepped into a painfully dark time in history. Roman dominance. Temple dissension. Hurting broken people. Nothing new under the sun.
But Jesus did give us new. NEW that He alone could give. New life. Changed life. Purposeful life. Redeemed life. Abundant life. Eternal life.
New! And that gives hope. Real hope. Hope that you and I can trust every promise He made. So, clothe yourself with hope today. Let go of fear, anger, frustration, hopelessness, and embrace the truth of the Good Friday to Easter to Forever through the promises of Jesus.
Read the promises here.
Now it’s time for…
