The story of Jesus doesn't end with the cross or even the grave in which He was laid. He is risen! He overcame death and continues to live.
We can live a few weeks without food, a few days without water, but we can’t live long without hope.
Our world has become impersonal—and we’ve become uninvolved and reluctant to serve others. And yet, it’s in helping others we find the key to a fulfilled life.
Only when we face the facts of the horrors of Jesus' death can we fully appreciate the price that was paid on Calvary.
Although difficult, we need to learn to wait for God’s timing with patience and contentment. Worry is worthless. God knows our needs, and He can handle them.
We live in a death-denying culture. We don’t like to think about it, talk about it, or even plan on it. But Jesus did not have that option. The shadow of the cross stretched across each day of His life on earth.
