James HendersonHello.

A few days ago there was a minor earthquake near where I live in England.

It was only 3.2 on the Richter scale, and according to reports from the British Geological Survey, was not powerful enough to cause any significant damage. It did, however, remind me of another earthquake which was powerful enough to cause significant hope.

It took place after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. A Roman centurion and some guards were watching Jesus at the moment of his death on the cross, This is how the gospel according to Matthew records it: "The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus' resurrection and went into the city and appeared to many people. When the centurion and those who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, 'Surely he was the Son of God!'" (27:51-54).

This was a precursor, a sign of hope for all men and women everywhere. This week we have been reminded of many tragic events like the Hillsborough stadium disaster, and we have witnessed the terrible loss of life on that South Korean ferry: we need to be reminded of the hope that is Jesus Christ.

Trust in Jesus.
