1 Corinthians 15:12-20 NLT; Jeremiah 17:5-8; John 15:1-5 NRSV
If our hope is withered and starving today, what have we been feeding it? If in Christ alone our hope is found, then by Christ alone our hope is fed. Our hope depends on a living source far greater than itself for life and sustenance. Christ is our source, and He alone is the one who turns our desolate and withered despair into vibrant and fruitful hope, if we will abide in Him.
