Life and Hope

 "While there's life, there's hope." - Cicero

I have just finished reading a book about Cicero and Julius Caesar. It was a fascinating read and I learnt things about Marcus Tullius Cicero that I never knew. As he lived from 106 - 43 B.C. we can't claim that he was a Christ-follower, but there are plenty of links between his philosophy and that of the early Christian church. It would have been interesting to see if he would have followed the teachings of Jesus if he had lived 200 years later.

His quote above is very much a "Resurrection" quote and it speaks into our lives in a clear way. With the resurrection of Jesus there was a renewal of all hope and purpose for the disciples, as well as for us. 

May we remember that with Jesus there is always hope and therefore always life.

1 Corinthians 15:19 - "If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied."

Living in Grace
