So Christ is in the grave but only for a day, so let go of the sadness because the outcome is out of this world. In His resurrection He brought Hope to life and into life. There’s hope now for every hurt, every pain, every sadness and all the disappointments that plague you and stalk you and haunt you and hunt you down. Those things ~ heavy on your heart can now be given over to the One who defeated the biggest enemy of all time ~ death!! Because Christ defeated death, He defeated all of the nitty, gritty other stuff too ~ and you can live free from the fear of it all, and the sting of it all, because He lives and He’s got you and if you’ve got Him you don’t need to fret and stew over the big stuff. It won’t all disappear but He’ll take the weight and heal the hurt, and mend the brokenness and carry your load over the rough spots. So between Good Friday and Easter Sunday rejoice because Hope lives in the victorious risen Lord and in your downer than down days well ~ hope lies there too.
1 Corinthians 15: 54 – 58
“So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“Oh Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
