Sorrows are turned to hope when we seek the risen Savior
From Sorrow to Hope – John 20:11-18
We weep because of sorrow, but we need to process these sorrows in light of Jesus’ resurrection.
The death of a loved one causes sorrow, but we must process it in light of Jesus’ resurrection.
If we will seek the crucified, risen, and ascended Savior, He turns our sorrows into hope.
We seek the crucified Savior.
We seek the risen Savior.
We seek the ascended Savior.
When we seek the risen Savior, He turns our sorrows into hope.
Seek the risen Savior honestly, diligently, personally, and obediently.
During World War II, a secret message got through to some American prisoners in a German concentration camp that the war was over. But it would be three more days before that word got to their German captors.
During those three days, nothing changed in terms of their hardships in the prison. But their attitude changed from despair to hope. They knew that soon they would be released because the Allies had won the war.
Whatever your sorrows or trials today, you can have hope because Jesus won the victory over death. He has risen and He asks you the same questions that He asked Mary:
“Why are you weeping?” “Whom are you seeking?”
If through your tears, you will seek the risen Savior honestly, diligently, personally, and obediently, He will turn your sorrows into hope.
