I hope the weather improves and warms up. I hope my boss gives me a raise. I hope I won’t get sick. We can hope all we want, but there is uncertainty in those statements, isn’t there? This Sunday, Jesus talks to us about a hope that is completely different. His hope is certain and guaranteed. That’s because his hope has its source in his resurrection. The living Lord gives hope. Jesus gives you hope.
We need it in a world that offers little hope and plenty of uncertainty.
