No hope, still…

When Mary Magdalene, Mary, mother of James, and Salome came to the tomb on that Sunday morning, they were worried about the stone. As it was written earlier, the stone was very large, it was sealed and was guarded. But they had a much greater problem than the large, sealed and guarded stone.

They had no hope.

Proverbs 18:14 says, “… but who can bear a broken spirit?” (NKJV)

When they went to the tomb, they were not hoping to see the Risen Lord, Jesus Christ in His glory. They went there with absolutely no hope. They went to anoint the body of Jesus. According to them, Jesus had died and that was the end of the story. They had no hope.

Dear child of God, probably you are also in such a situation, where you have no hope left at all. Nothing. Whatever hopes you had were dashed to pieces, grounded to dust and buried deep.

  • Does your future look bleak without any hopes?
  • Are you still looking for a job, at the age, when you thought you would be well settled in your life?
  • Is your body giving away slowly to the disease that you have been fighting for a while?
  • Have you lost all hope that you will ever be living a life that is pleasing to God?
  • Though you are religious, lately you are attending the church services out of habit rather than out of love for God?
  • Do you feel that the anointing you received is slowly burning down?

No matter what, dear friend, come to the Lord.

The women went to the tomb, without any hope. All they wanted to do was to anoint the body of a dead Jesus. But, then the power of resurrection came in its awesome might and they witnessed the Risen Lord, Jesus Christ.

Like them, you may have lost all your hopes. All you want is just go through one more day. But come to Him, come to the LORD our Saviour Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection will be evident in your life.

The women came to anoint a dead body. But they ended up witnessing the greatest event in the history of mankind. Yes, come to Jesus even if you have no hope and you shall witness the great awesome power of our LORD in your life. And from a hopeless situation, the LORD will change your life so much that you will inspire hope unto thousands of others who have lost their hope. Amen.

U have Jesus

Hebrews 9:28“so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”

It is sealed.

red-wax-seaedlWhen the women went that morning to visit the Sepulchre, not only the stone was great, but it was also sealed.

Sometimes, in our life, not only the difficulties would be great, but there would be seals that are not supposed to be broken.

  • It may be a seal of gender that is imposed on you by the society.
  • It may be a seal of your skin tone.
  • It may be a seal of your caste, race or country.
  • It may be a seal of your poverty.
  • It may be a seal of your education.
  • It may be a seal of how your parents brought you up.
  • It may be a seal of how you have wasted few years of your life.

There are times it is so difficult to get rid of those seals. In my life, I had faced many problems because of certain seals that were on me because of my childhood, skin tone, language problems, mistakes I have made and also because I am a Christian.

Even now, there are times, I can hear some of the seals being whispered behind my back. It does not scare me, but I have to admit that it does scar me.

But, then, a still voice tells me… “Don’t cry… the Lion of the tribe of Judah… has conquered. And HE will break the seven seals.” (Rev. 5:5)

Yes, dear friend, no matter what seals the world puts on the stone that is blocking your growth in the LORD, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, our Lord Jesus Christ has conquered and He will break all the seals.LionTribeofJudahlayout

1 Corinthians 1:10“[A Church Divided Over Leaders] I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
