Hope of Eternal Life
Bible Reading: Matthew 27:45-61

I am from a family of nine children. I am the youngest. Three of my brothers and one sister have already died. It was hard for me to lose my brothers and sister.
Our Bible Reading tells us about Jesus’ death and burial. It must have been very hard for Mary and Mary Magdalene to watch Jesus die and be buried. As they sat near the tomb, they probably felt that all hope was gone.
But Matthew, chapter 28, tells us that Jesus arose from the dead. Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we have the hope of living forever with Him. Jesus said in John 6:40, “Everyone who sees the Son and believes in him has eternal life. I will raise them up on the last day. This is what my Father wants.”
If you are a Christian, you already have this hope of eternal life. Share with someone today about God’s plan so they, too, can live forever with Him. — ECW
“The angel said to the women, ‘Don’t be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus, the one who was killed on the cross. But he is not here. He has risen from death, as he said he would.’” Matthew 28:5-6a
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, what a wonderful hope we have through Your Son, Jesus. In His name. Amen.
