Good Friday

Have you ever felt as though all hope was lost?

Imagine for a moment how the disciples felt seeing their Lord crucified that day? Why God? I don't understand. What excruciating suffering is this? How could this be happening? How could you let this happen?

I'm certain these questions and more flooded their minds and hearts as they watched Jesus painfully take his last breathe. And imagine the grief stricken, hopelessness of laying Jesus' lifeless body in the tomb. They must have thought it was all over; that all hope was gone forever.

How could anything good possibly come from this situation? Have you asked similar questions of God in desperate circumstances? Perhaps you're in the midst of them today.

Friends, be encouraged…for though Friday is here; Sunday's coming! And Sunday brings with it a glorious resurrection, an eternal hope and endless possibilities.

May the God of all hope fill you with all joy and peace as you put your trust in Him.
