Easter brings HOPE

Greetings and welcome to this month’s prayer fellowship. Your devotion to pray for and with CURE is never taken for granted. Thank you.

The Easter season reminds us of familiar stories in the Bible like the triumphal entry, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection. However, this is not where the story ends. There is the big lesson tying all these stories together – HOPE.

God weaves in hope with not only the promise and appearance of Jesus but more through His bodily resurrection. The words “He is not here, for He is risen, as He said” (Mat 28:6) hold the hope of Christianity for the world then, now, and for the eternal future. Through Him, we can have eternal life (Jn 3:16) and abundant life (Jn 10:10).

Jesus’ resurrection brings us hope.

  • Hope over the past: that our sins are forgiven if we confess and that our failures are no greater than God’s power to transform.
  • Hope for the present: that we are not alone but are loved and have a purpose.
  • Hope for the future: that we will be redeemed. Indeed our hope rests on the finished work of Jesus- Hallelujah!

As we embark on prayers, please be encouraged that Jesus not only came to bring hope but that He is our hope and indeed the “blessed hope” (Tit 2:13).
