Our hope in Jesus Christ

The resurrection of Jesus gives believers hope of eternal life. This hope is found not simply in the fact that Jesus lives today and is seated at the right hand of the Father. This hope is not only found in the fact that a supernatural event happened in the history of mankind which gives evidence of the possibility of life after death. Our hope is primarily found in the person of Jesus Christ, who he is and what he can do. Jesus is the promised Messiah. He is the Son of God, the express image of his glory. There is no one like him. None even compare to his holiness and righteous love. The resurrection of our Lord Jesus gives us assurance of his uniqueness and power. Paul, speaking about Christ.


Jesus, mentioned how the Holy Spirit powerfully declared Jesus to be the promised Messiah. He was declared to be the eternal king, descendant of David by human lineage in that he had overcome death being raised in bodily form. He is also vindicated in his claims to be one who has been sent by the Father from heaven in that God was the one who raised him from the dead. He is one person with two natures. One hundred percent uncorrupted humanity and one hundred percent God. What a precious Savior! I hope that your meditation on the resurrection gives you hope and confidence in the person of Jesus Christ.
