Now more than ever, our nation needs hope. We are in a time of great uncertainty. No one knows what is going to happen next. For many, the fear of death is becoming very real. Now more than ever, we need some good news.
It was my privilege this morning to speak to our Cedarville family in a special Good Friday online chapel presentation. In this time of uncertainty, we find our hope in the only thing we can be truly certain of, the truth of God’s Word. Looking at 1 Corinthians 15:3-5, we were reminded of the reason for our hope — the Good News, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We reviewed three main points in this passage:
- Substitutionary Atonement: Christ died on the cross for my sins and in my place, and He was buried.
- According to the Scriptures: Jesus’ death fulfilled Old Testament Scriptures. God’s Word was written so we might believe and be saved.
- Supernatural Resurrection: On the third day, Jesus raised from the dead. We have a risen Savior who will someday make all things right.
That is the Good News that gives us hope. That is why we are not afraid and do not despair during these uncertain days. We know that we have been reconciled to our Creator because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. We know that we have the hope of eternal life because He overcame death.
Join us for this special Good Friday chapel. I pray your soul finds rest and peace in the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
