Good Friday: Everlasting Hope Awaits

And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get.—Mark 15:24 (NIV)
As the grief -stricken followers of Jesus laid Him in the tomb, so too, they lay down the wreckage of their hope. Easter Sunday was ahead, but on that Friday, they did not know that. Sometimes in our own lives when devastating tragedy strikes, we feel as the disciples did, that Jesus has failed us. In these times, Easter is our hope. As Sue Monk Kidd wrote, “Somewhere in every crown of suffering, God has implanted a bud of strength that can burst open, releasing extra power.”
All-powerful God, when my life seems broken, help me to remember the everlasting hope that awaits.
