As human beings, we all are hope-based creatures. What are you and your children finding your hope in right now? As a family, work through this week's FAITH at Home and discover why Jesus is our only secure hope, one that can never be taken away.
20 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”
Pray, asking for forgiveness for trusting and finding hope in the wrong things (things like protecting ourselves from danger, preparing for difficulties we can’t foresee and trying to predict our own futures).
Admit in prayer that hope can’t be obtained by any of these things that we do….only by trusting in Jesus.
Ask God to help each of you build your hope on Jesus, who nothing and no one in life can take away from you.
Pray together to trust in Jesus! Thank Him for saving us!
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
