Why Hope?



"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you..."
I Peter 1:3,4

Why Hope? In the midst of the grief of losing a baby, we still have the urgency to hope.

We hope that we will see them again.

We hope they are in good hands and happy today.

We hope that we can somehow pick up the pieces and find meaning to life again.

Because Jesus Christ died on the cross, we can cling to all of these hopes if we have received him, as things that WILL come to pass, and things that can be counted on. Through Him, our hopes become realities. Our pain is ever present, but our hope is not wishful thinking, it is real. It is something we wait for.
