Without Christ’s Resurrection, Jesus ministry and purpose would just be a disillusionment. Without Christ’s Resurrection, Jesus would only be seen as martyr who was greatly misunderstood. Without Christ’s Resurrection, we would just be hopeless creation, born to live and currently living to eventually die. Without Christ’s Resurrection, there would be no Gospel because the Gospel, which means “Good News” is the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In difficult times like this, we may forget who God is. We may even doubt His sovereignty but today I want to encourage you with a simple truth: We can still have hope in times of uncertainty or difficulty. We can still be hopeful when we feel hopeless. With God’s help and with each other, we can overcome COVID19 and any other things that come our way. If there is anything this time has been teaching us, it is that we are a community and we are capable of more than we sometimes believe. We are capable of demonstrating the love that God invented — unconditional love.
Because our society, our communities, and the world are afraid. They are afraid of the unknown. But as a Believer, our faith is not in just some “higher being” or even “the man upstairs.” Our faith is rooted in Christ — the Saviour of the world. He has power that no one else can possess. He sees the past, present, and the future. He knows what lies ahead of us and what goes before us. There is nothing and no one that cannot first pass through Christ before getting to us.
When we live in fear, it is not pleasing to Christ because perfect love casteth out fear and Jesus = Perfect Love.
Faithlessness will bring us to a place of depletion, incompletion, and unsatisfaction. Faithfulness (not in what we do) but in Whom we place it in — this case, Jesus, will result in a life of extension, completion, and satisfaction.
“Are you weak? Do you need strength to get up and cook dinner? Are you tired? Moms who put their trust in the Lord have the promise of new strength and hope that will soar like eagles in their hearts… The only hope we have is a life of complete dependence upon our Father. He sees us with all-seeing eyes, understands us completely, and wants to meet us in the middle of our mess and reduce us from hopelessness. He sent us Jesus to show us the way home with hope.”

Motherhood can be a delight but also a danger, if not done with caution. Consider the first three dangers mentioned in this post. “It’s the best of jobs. It’s the most difficult of jobs. It can bring you the greatest joy. It can cause the greatest pain. There is nothing as fulfilling and exhilarating. There’s nothing so depleting and exhausting. No area of your life can make you feel more like a success when everything is going well. No area of your life can make you feel more like a failure when things go wrong.” (Stormie Omartian)

You may be at a point in your life, just like I was, when it’s difficult to celebrate other’s successes. It’s hard seeing people who don’t even care for God, “succeed.” Sometimes, you may wonder if living the Christian life is even worth it. So whether you know someone who has succeeded in an area of their life or if you are working so hard and want to succeed in some area of your life, Just remember that the Bible does command us to rejoice always, rejoice evermore. Remember that you can’t succeed on your own.
