True Hope: The Message of Easter

As I grow older, I realize counseling is just a “bandaid” for our problems and does nothing for our human condition. True transformation and wholeness is centered around Jesus Christ, where God's presence transforms and fills us with new hope and strength to face the challenges of this world. The source of all true counseling is Jesus Christ.

As followers of Jesus, we hold onto the promise, as written by Paul to the Roman church: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13). This hope allows us to rejoice even in our suffering (Romans 5:2-3). 

Easter is a time of celebration and reflection on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The empty tomb represents God's power to overcome death itself. It is not just a historical fact, but a testament to the victory over sin and death that God offers through Jesus.

The resurrection of Jesus demonstrates God's love and power, giving great hope to believers. It assures us that we can overcome the challenges we face in this life with His help and comfort. He is the one who comforts us in our trials and tribulations. 

In prayer, we seek God's presence and renewal. We ask Him to renew our faith and hope through the resurrection of His Son, finding peace and strength in the reality of the empty tomb.

The resurrection of the lord Jesus Christ invites us to embrace the mystery and joy of God's love triumphing over death. This Easter, let us contemplate the boundless love of God, who sacrificed His Son for our sake. The prayer Jesus prayed on the cross “My God, my God why have Thou forsaken me?” (Psalm 22). The answer is found with the resurrected Lord: so His followers will never be forsaken! (Matthew 28:20)  May this knowledge fill our hearts with gratitude, joy and steadfastness hope.
