Jesus came to save us from our sins. Had Adam not sinned, we would not have need for reconciliation with God. His Son, though, is our salvation, for through Him our sins are no more. God forgave us and we have hope for the coming days.
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
God sees our suffering, He knows what our trials are, and He gives us strength when we feel defeated, power when emptied from our wounds and joy when sadness prevails. He pours more of His spirit into us so that His eternal joy lives in us. We are invincible with God living in us.
No greater hope do we have than that of knowing God sacrificed His Son as payment for our sins. And if God would do that for us, what lies beyond the grave when He raises us to glory and honor, surpassing even the angels? Indeed, He has blessed us now with utter joy!
Our hope is in the resurrection, from a decaying body to an everlasting one, from a life with an end to living into eternity, and from sadness to utter happiness, brimful and running over. Our hope is in God.
