All is NOT Lost

One can only imagine the feeling of loss, anguish, and despair they all felt that first Easter Sunday.
Just three days ago they saw their best friend, leader, and son beaten beyond recognition, and crucified.
And some even witnessed his lifeless body being placed into the barowed tomb.
And on the morning of the third day.
John 20:1-9
The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

As you see all HOPE was not lost
The Same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the grave is alive and well today.
( Romans 8:9)
That same Holy Spirit lives in each Christian to guide, teach, bring convection, but also to comfort you.
It is because of the Holy Spirit that we can have the peace that passes all understanding.
The Joy deep down in our Soul, and Hope when all seems hopeless.
Yes we are living in difficult times.
But we have what the World doesn't have
We have the same Power of the Holy Spirit living within each one of us.
The World maybe with out hope and living in darkness.
But let us that have the Hope living in us bring hope and light to this dark World.
1 Corinthians 15:50-58
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Now let me say this again All hope is NOT lost
So as Christian let's stand together and live above the clouds, and bring light to this dark World
And Bring hope to those without hope
Please share this with anyone that could use some hope for today.
