Psalm 118

First Reading: 

Job 19:23-27

In all of his suffering and misery, Job had a sure confidence, namely, that after this life he would live again with his ever-living Savior. When this life is full of fears, doubts, and tears; and there seems to be so little about which you can be sure, TAKE HEART! REJOICE! and KNOW…YOUR REDEEMER LIVES!

Without Christ’s resurrection we would have no hope because we would still be in the guilt of our sins. However, the sure knowledge that Jesus lives gives us the confidence that our sins are forgiven, death and grave are defeated, and we will live glorified with our Savior forever!
