Imagine how Jesus’ disciples must have felt after seeing their Master crucified, and His broken, disfigured body later wrapped up and sealed in a tomb. According to the Bible, many believed that along with Jesus’ death went their hopes and dreams of ever being delivered. But those who truly believed in Him as the Son of God remembered what Jesus said in the days leading to His crucifixion. They recalled Him saying, “I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of” (John 10:10, The Message). That promise still stands today. It may seem like your hopes and dreams have been destroyed—that they have been wrapped up just as tightly as Jesus was when He was placed in the tomb. Just remember, Jesus rose from the dead just like He said. And when He returned, hope sprang alive in the hearts of those who followed Him. As one of His followers, don’t let your hopes and dreams die. Your Savior is alive and so are His promises to you!
