Jesus has two interesting promises for those who follow him. That there will be trouble in this world and that he has overcome the world. The promises seem to be in tension but Jesus stands in between and says “take heart”. He give love, hope, victory and peace. In this sermon Pastor Lachlan invites us into the Christ empowered posture of hopeful realism, engaging in our ‘Easter Saturday’ world between death and resurrection, with Jesus promises and presence anchoring our lives and perspective of everything.
