Joy in the waiting:day 97-💯 days of Joy

Standard

I can only begin to imagine what it must have been like for the disciples and close family/friends of Jesus the days after He died and was buried. They didn’t know what was going to happen on the third day, not really. Yes, He had hinted at it in seemingly mysterious sayings, but they hadn’t really understood it, and really, how could they…?

They didn’t know what we know on this side of the resurrection …. so, even though they might have a vague hope that something was going to happen, overall, they were filled with sorrow. Yet, here we are on the day before Easter, and we know….We know He rose again; we also know He told us that He will come again. 

Do we live like we know? Do we live in the hope and joy of what we know was reality, is reality, and will be reality?  How do we live while we are waiting…..?

The sun will rise tomorrow and we will sing praises that Jesus is risen. May we let that reality impact our hope, our joy, our trust that He will come again….He kept His promise to rise again … He will keep His promise to return.
