Hello!

We must live as global-minded Christians who are active on a local level. This blog is a conversation to equip and challenge you to live glocally.

The Hope of Easter

The Hope of Easter

As we celebrate Easter today, which marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ, I am reminded of the hope that His death-defeating act brought us.

Today DOES NOT give us a hope that: 

  • Life is all good.
  • We won't have any pain or hurt.
  • We'll win every battle.
  • We won't ever cry again. 

But IT DOES give us a hope that: 

  • Life hurts sometimes - but it will all be healed one day (i.e. the end of all time when Jesus reclaims all of His Creation).
  • We will have pain AND hurt, yet God will always journey through that pain and hurt with us.
  • Even when we lose battles in life, we have won the war through Jesus Christ.
  • God weeps with us. (See John 11: 33-35)
Most importantly, Easter reminds us that - no matter where we are in life - this is not the end. Our lives are not defined by today. Our lives were defined 2,000 years ago when our God sacrificed His life in place of ours.
— Jeremy Height

Our hope today is that "It's Not Over Yet" - which is summed up beautifully in this song by the band for King & Country.

Today, have hope. It's not over yet. 

Happy Easter.
