1 Chronicles 19:1-20:8; Ezekiel 18:1-19:14; John 6:41-7:11

But after I am risen again, I will go before you…Peter followed him afar off…and sat with the servants, to see the end. Matthew 26:32, 58

“All is finished”, said the teacher from Russia when telling us that his father had died very suddenly. Just like Peter, who sat with the servants to see “the end,” he had no hope! But for Peter and all who will trust Christ as their Saviour, death—far from being the end, can be a glorious new beginning. Christ rose again on the third day. We could therefore tell the Russian teacher that “Jesus is alive! He is able to save you from your sin and give you eternal life”. This is the message we must carry to a world which is dying without hope and without God. —David Croudace

Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives. —K. Chenoweth
