The Hope of Easter

In John 11:25 we read:
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

All of us have had love ones pass away. Death is an integral part of this mortal existence. When friends and family pass to the other side, we here left behind feel the void left in our own lives.

Easter reminds us that death is not permanent. That through the resurrection of Christ, all shall be made alive. This time of year then becomes a time of hope. To know that, though we are parted, we shall be reunited in the hereafter.
