Jesus: Hope for Tomorrow!!

Happy Easter to all of you here on our campus in Moses Lake and our online LCF. So glad you have joined us as we celebrate the real reason we have so much hope around here. Jesus accomplished what we would never be able too, and He gave us His success to own as our own!

Now there is no doubt, to achieve the destiny you have, there are going to be some days that are not real fun, some days with disappointment and loss and some days with pain; but I thought today we might take a little different look at the Easter story and look at the model in Jesus’ death, his burial and his resurrection, a model of how to handle pain in life.
The Bible says this. 1 Peter 2:21 says this “God has called you to endure suffering [in other words to go through tough times] because Christ suffered for you. He also left you an example so that you could follow in his footsteps.”

In other words through Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection, he actually modeled what you should do in the worst days of your life. When you go through the tragedies, the terrible pain filled circumstances, the days of doubt and depression and despair. He says you need to follow the model of what Jesus did when he suffered.

Let me explain it this way:

Friday was the day of pain and suffering and agony.
Saturday was the day of loss and grief and confusion and misery.
Sunday was the day of joy, celebration and victory.
