At the cross of Christ…
Life came through death.
Fruitfulness came through pain.
Salvation came through suffering.
Victory came through sacrifice.
Hope came through despair.
Joy came through mourning.
So no… Hope is not lost. Through Jesus, life waits around every painful corner, and hope is always on the horizon.
John 12:23-24 – But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.”
