We have hope and belief in the resurrection, but we see it as distant and far off. In our eagerness to confess the resurrection “rightly” as Martha did, is it possible that we put faith in a far off event? Is it possible that in the here and now, we find an incomplete hope and an incomplete comfort because we see the only solutions as 1. having already passed by and 2. being agonizingly distant?

Jesus doesn’t minimize our fears or anxieties and He doesn’t deny them. Truly, He speaks, each day DOES have trouble enough of its own. But in each day He stands as Savior and Redeemer, as Brother and Friend, delivering to us the good gifts of the Heavenly Father: “all that we need for this body and life” and “for the life of the world to come.”

“We too, live in the joy of giving thanks to God because His gracious Word has fallen on us. Our ears have heard, our eyes have seen, our mouths have tasted and our faith has grasped the love of Christ for us.”
