To believe in the resurrection of the dead requires that we have a confident hope. The resurrection seems to make no sense, yet it is at the heart of the Gospel. We must hope, even if it seems impossible.

Where do I draw the line in what I believe? Do I express a confident hope in god’s promises, including the ones that don’t seem to make sense?

O God, help me make the leap of faith. May I trust in Your Word and rely on hope to carry me through today.
