The message of the "lively hope" we have in Christ's resurrection was to go to Peter because he, like all of us, needed it, for he had felt the hopelessness of sin. Peter remembered the look of the Master that caused him to weep bitterly. Now there were tears of joy for Peter. He had seen his risen LORD.

Thou King of grace,
When, praying thus,
We seek Thy face.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Pray for the Spirit's fruit: which is love.
