For He was teaching His disciples saying to them, “For the Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him. And when He is killed, after three days He will rise.” ~ Mark 9:31
What a time that Friday was all those years ago. A beautiful sacrifice of Christ. But even though he prepared His followers, they were still unsure. They still did not see the hope of His promise for a time that probably seemed like forever to them.
As we go through our lives, praying for family, for health, for certain situations, we have to remember Christ has already fulfilled His promises to us. And we deserve none of them. We have to listen and trust in Him no matter how long those days from despair to hope may seem.
Be blessed today! 🙂
