I Peter 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead”

While the concept of rapid change for the worse from the post on April 13th is discouraging and sobering, the potential for rapid change through the Lord for the better can be far more encouraging and uplifting.  The Lord used the worst event in history, the crucifixion of the Son of God, and transformed it in a few short days into the best event in human history.  Through Jesus’ death, sin was crushed by His abundant mercy and lively hope was provided through His resurrection.  With the Lord in the midst of it, the direst situation was quickly transformed into hopefulness.

As Christians in 21st Century America, we have plenty to be concerned about.  Yet, with the Lord in the midst there is never reason to give up hope.  Indeed, with the Lord in the midst we should always expect that He can transform the worst into the best.  PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD BE FILLED WITH HOPEFULNESS THAT THE LORD CAN TRANSFORM OUR NATION.  It is up to us to put Him in the midst of it all, since He is the one that provides us lively hope regardless of the circumstances.
