The women who went to the tomb on the first Easter received the best news ever delivered. Jesus is not dead. He has risen! Jesus was not a failed messiah. Instead he was victorious over death, the final enemy. And in his victory he holds out eternal life to all who will trust in him.
What is our hope in Christ? That this life is not all there is. That at the end we will be resurrected into new and glorious bodies for an eternity with our creator. We need not be pitied for our hope in Christ. What we gain is infinitely greater than what we lose.
