Wednesday, April 12 – John 11:25

Apr 11, 2023

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; the one who believes in Me will live, even if he dies.”

 

We use the phrase “light at the end of the tunnel” when we are struggling during a dark time. In these moments, knowing there is hope helps us through the struggle of the moment. For Christians, Jesus is not only the light at the end of the tunnel that reminds us of the hope ahead, but He is also the present help in our difficult moments. Psalm 23:4 says, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

 

We have hope of life beyond the grave, and we have hope of life in the ups and downs we face today. Jesus is the resurrection, the hope beyond death, and the life. What would happen if we remembered this regularly and not only on Easter Sunday or when losing a loved one? In joy and sorrow, smooth sailing or rough seas, we have Jesus as the way to find life itself. What would happen if we started to remember the power of Jesus’s resurrection in our workplaces when we faced an overwhelming day, in our families when we faced the chaos of the week, or in the moments when we feel overwhelmingly alone? We don’t have to wait for a better day to come or for circumstances to change. We have the living and present hope of Jesus right now.

 

  • When have you felt alone in a struggle?
  • When have you felt God’s presence and power in a difficult moment?
  • Pray and ask God to remind you of His living, present hope in Jesus.
