|Just 5 months ago 15 year old Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head at point blank range by the Taliban - her only crime was that she wanted an education, something the Taliban wish to deny to girls. How close she was to death. How little hope there must have been at that time.
Now, after operations in Pakistan and England she has been able to begin again with education in the UK and a very bright future ahead. Now with a book deal worth $3 million her life could not be further from the life she had under the Taliban.
It is rare that the media report such a dramatic change in life. However millions of lives are drastically changed every day because of the hope of the Easter Message. Jesus said "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live; even though he dies!"
The power of the resurrection that God exerted when He raised Jesus from the dead has the power to change the most hopeless life.
God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
May you know His resurrection power this Easter
