A Week Of Hope

There are so many signs of spring this week, from sunshine and warm temperatures to blossoms and butterflies. The world is just waking up to the renewing of the season with new life popping up all around us.

During this Holy Week, we are immersed in the sacrifice Jesus Christ so willingly offered. His blood became the offering God required to forgive us of our sins and put us into fellowship with Him. But deep within the pain and agony Christ would endure in the coming days, there was always a flame of hope.

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, it was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 1 Peter 1:20-21

Make this a week of hope, pure and vibrant hope in knowing that Christ died and rose again for you. There are many things that will pull you in the next few days - circumstances and events that will attempt to rob you of your hope and your joy. It's in these moments that you can turn in the Scriptures to the passages where Christ overcame all and has promised to return.

And you can always turn to the back of the Book, where we win. There's nothing better to hope in than this.
