Keeping Hope

Luke 24:9 When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.

Saturday, the day between the crucifixion of Jesus and the day of His resurrection. From this verse we can deduce the disciples spent the time together, at least those who didn’t run away. They were in mourning for the loss of their friend and in fear for their own lives. All their hopes and dreams were dashed. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where it seems our hopes and dreams are dashed. We are blessed to know the outcome of the crucifixion. Jesus rose from the dead. All the hopes and dreams in Him are reality. The disciples had to wait to find this. We only have to remember Who to look to in order to keep from despondency and dejection. When the darkness seems to swallow us we can look to Jesus. God is faithful to fulfill all His promises. We only need to learn to trust and obey.
