Looking to Christ
As we prepare to observe Jesus’ resurrection, let it be our hearts desire, as God’s people to observe it with great joy, and praise and much thanksgiving, and that in preparing our hearts we would rest in hope of the coming resurrection of the saints as set forth in Christ Jesus, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep (1 Corinthians 15:20). Let us fix our sights on Christ and may He be our hope and our rest.
