In the Land of Hope

It's Good Friday...here's a reminder from the book of Acts on what was to come...

Acts 2:26-28 The Message (MSG) “Fellow Israelites, listen carefully to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man thoroughly accredited by God to you—the miracles and wonders and signs that God did through him are common knowledge—this Jesus, following the deliberate and well-thought-out plan of God, was betrayed by men who took the law into their own hands, and was handed over to you. And you pinned him to a cross and killed him. But God untied the death ropes and raised him up. Death was no match for him. David said it all:

I saw God before me for all time.

    Nothing can shake me; he’s right by my side.

I’m glad from the inside out, ecstatic;

    I’ve pitched my tent in the land of hope.

I know you’ll never dump me in Hades;

    I’ll never even smell the stench of death.

You’ve got my feet on the life-path,

    with your face shining sun-joy all around.
