Because God raised Jesus from the dead, we have hope!

And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.

Acts 4:31


The gospel preached and believed

. . . the most wonderful thing of all–the holiest spot in all the holy ground of gospel truth–is the free invitation that the Lord Christ issues repeatedly to guilty sinners to come to Him and find rest for their souls.
Does God give you His Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?
Galatians 3:5

We stand in the gospel

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:1-2
He enables us to serve Him by pouring out His grace on us. So when we define ourselves, we ought to think, “I am a forgiven sinner who stands in the grace of God through the gospel of His son.” We ought to think, “He has gracefully chosen to use me and equip me, not because I am so great, but because His grace is so great.” Amazing grace. Grace defines who we are because we stand in the gospel.

Jesus’ resurrection gives us hope

This world is not all that we have because Jesus was raised from the grave.
morning sermon, Rev. Tim Rackley, May 28, 2023
For our heart is glad in Him,
    because we trust in His holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
    even as we hope in You.
Psalm 33:21-22
Heavenly Father: Our words fail to convey Your magnificence or to acknowledge Your awesome attributes. Thank You for hearing us when we pray and for Your provision in every aspect of our lives. You are worthy of our praise and worship. You have saved us when we were dead in our sin, not because of anything we have done, but because You love us so much. As You continue to teach us about selfless love, and we wrestle to comprehend Your sacrificial provision in our lives, we are thankful.
