Easter Devotion – Luke 6:21

Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. (Luke 6:21)

Jesus suffered on the cross and understands our suffering during this coronavirus pandemic. The homeless are among those suffering. Shelters, requiring six feet between mattresses, are relocating people to the streets. Pedestrians are sparse, so donation cups remain empty, leaving many starving and weeping. Those of us whose loved ones are dying or have lost jobs cry with them.

On the up side more of us hunger for God. This Easter Day we are reminded that Christ died for the hungry and weeping. When we give our suffering to Him through prayer and read His words, we will be satisfied. Because He lives, we will live also, and God will wipe away our tears.

Heavenly Father, help shelters receive the funds they need to provide food and protection for the homeless. Lead the hungry to Your Son to be satisfied. Bring the weepers to Yourself so You can wipe away their tears. Show me how to help. Thank you for giving us hope. Because Jesus rose, we will rise also and live where there is no sorrow or crying or pain. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Yesterday I spent time reading the Holy week story in the Bible in the book of Matthew. Matthew 27 starts when they take Jesus to Pontius Pilate. What Jesus went through before he went to the cross and while on the cross is sobering. He did this for us. I tried to focus on the empty tomb and Jesus rising and the gift he gave to us. I often feel as we go through difficult and uncertain times that we are not crying alone. I feel that God cries with us when we suffer. Jesus gave us the gift of knowing that when we leave Earth we will go to a place where we will not suffer and we will not cry. We will be with our Father and we will be filled with joy that we can not comprehend. Happy Easter, Jody!

    1. One of the most moving Scriptures in the Bible is, “Jesus wept.” He definitely cries with us! Happy Easter! I love you, Sis.
