Friends, in our own way, we have all been in this situation where hope seems to fade away. God is seemingly silent during human suffering and misery. On a grand worldwide scale, and on the small personal scale – we all experience the four days of the tomb. God is not in fact, absent but sometimes he works silently. God so loves us brothers and sisters that he refuses to let death have the last say. God so loves us that he sends his only beloved Son, to die for us and rise from the dead, that all who believe in him might have eternal life. He dies to prove to us how much God loves us. Jesus comes not simply to heal us a little bit, but to raise the dead to new life.
