The resurrection of Jesus from the dead causes our hope to come alive. God by His mercy has “birthed” us into a living hope. Our hope is living and is based on the resurrection of the Lord Jesus from the dead.
We live in a sinful, fallen world; therefore, we will never escape the effects of mankind’s sinfulness on our lives. But God will be with us, He will strengthen us, if we call on Him, “fear not”.
…our faith in God may be tested to the ultimate. How will we come out on the other side of difficult situations? Will we emerge from our troubles and trials giving Christ the victory for having clung to Him and the promises in His Word?
