No one can ever say that life in this world isn’t rich and varied. We take the good with the bad because honestly, we have to. Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. But through it all, we keep going because our King is up ahead encouraging us.
On a dark day long ago, Jesus didn’t look like a King. His life was ebbing away on the cross. His followers were distraught as they looked on. Their whole world literally passing away. But thank God we know what happened soon after. There is darkness in this world, but we can look ahead to the light waiting for us in eternity.
Revelation 19:16 says, “On his robe and on his thigh, he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is history’s greatest moment. Thousands of years of amazing events all bow to that moment in a cool garden. Because Jesus came to earth as a human being and then overcame death. We know that we, too, will live forever with Him.
“He lives!” is the greatest word we’ll ever receive and it gives us, like His disciples, hope for the future.
Lord, thank you for sending your Son to rescue us from a dark future. That is the gospel itself, and we are forever grateful for it. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
