God Is Up to Something

In John 20:8, John models a resilient faith that we can all learn from. He sees Jesus’ empty tomb, and tells us simply that “he saw and believed.” John could easily have been overcome with despair, anguish, or fear in seeing the empty tomb, but his faith overcame. Biblical hope like this has the power to change the world, and to change your life. Hope is more potent than mere wishing, and more powerful than a passive resignation to “whatever happens”. Hope is a joyful anticipation, an eager expectation, and an assured belief that God is up to something.
