As we read this Great Rescue Story together, God wants us to remember: however we are feeling today, wherever we are today, whatever is happening in our lives today—however it looks, even if it looks like there is no hope at all—spring is coming. It may look like nothing is happening. It may even look like everything has died.
Spring is coming!
Easter is coming!
Jesus dies —yes, but he comes alive again!
And one day death and sickness and tears—they will be no more. Because God is making the story end happily for his world—and for his children!
