We are among the living because of Jesus Christ. He died to free us from our old lives of sin and death. He rose again to offer us new and everlasting life in God’s Kingdom. In this is our hope: that the world, for all its faults, is not yet what it will become. In Jesus is our hope: that we, for all our faults, are not what we will become. So, while we live, we hope in God to hear and to act on our behalf. So, neither a Cassandra nor a Pollyanna be! Strike the balance between the world’s grief and God’s hope. And if push comes to shove, lean toward hope!
