“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

– John 3:16

Tomorrow is Easter, and though it’s going to look a little bit different this year, I pray you can press into the slower pace, quiet your heart, and reflect on the immensity of what Jesus did on the cross. Today, Saturday, represents the time in which our Lord was in the grave. Having given up His Spirit unto death, He was laid in the tomb and somber disappointment covered the land. On the days “in-between,” things looked dark and hope seemed all but lost. To His earthly followers, Jesus was the embodiment of something different; a new way of life and a physical manifestation of divine goodness in their midst. When He breathed His last, they were crushed, and their hearts slipped into despair. To those hadn’t followed Him, however, the world, though equally dark, seemed the same as the day before. The earth kept spinning and they paid little attention to another “criminal” crucified by the Romans and hung to die on the road outside the city. As they continued living unphased, the next morning dawned and Jesus came back to life. While to His disciples this turn of events meant darkness lifted and joy restored, to the ones who didn’t know or care, nothing changed…

My friend, if you are in Christ, I want to encourage you to pray for those who don’t yet know the Light of the World. What we celebrate this weekend is a Living Hope that brings redemption to each and every circumstance we face. However, to those who haven’t experienced Him, it is simply another day, and that’s tragic. In these troubled times, everyone needs to know His peace that surpasses understanding, but there are many for whom the truth of Easter hasn’t yet dawned in their hearts. Since you are an ambassador of your Savior’s Good News, I implore you, now more than ever, to hold His banner of love over your life, pray for the hopeless, and share the glorious truth of the Gospel with those who desperately need it.


Jesus, I pray for those who don’t yet know you and I ask that you would draw them to yourself.


Who in your life needs to know Jesus?
