The Heart of Easter

Easter is coming soon! Easter is about the resurrection of Christ and about Christ dying for our sins. But, Easter is also about faith and hope. Christ's followers believed and hoped that they again would see Christ, but they didn't know that for sure. They just believed...and had hope and faith. Christ dying for our sins gives us hope that we can be made anew and start fresh...tomorrow is a new day. I think we all need more faith and hope, and belief in these things. It's what keeps us going. No one knows what's going to happen beyond today, but we believe it will be okay, and the sun will rise again. We have faith and hope in that. The Holy Bible says, "..for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Matthew 17:20; Hebrews 11:3) Have you ever seen the SIZE of a mustard seed??? It's very tiny. It doesn't take much faith. You just got to believe in it and have hope. So keep the faith, have hope, and believe, even if you can't see around the corner. It will be okay!! Love, Beau
