1 Corinthians 15:42 NLT: It is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever.
My beloved friend in Christ, have you ever thought about the day you will depart from this life? Well, I know you must have lost a loved one at one point in time or another. It’s a painful experience knowing that you will never see such a person again on this planet earth. But that pain should not be allowed to last long because there is hope for the believer who dies in Christ.
The word of God is reminding us today that there will be the resurrection of the dead on the last day. God will give us new Heavenly bodies and we will live forever in the Glory and praise of our God. Many may wonder, how is it possible? Is there anything too hard for God to do? Remember that Jesus Christ our Lord demonstrated this for mankind when His body was put to death. And you know that on the third day, that same body was raised to life by the Holy Spirit.
With this knowledge my dear friend, never again should you be afraid of death. Rather, it should remind you that nothing else matters in this world. For we all will leave behind all that we have acquired when we die. Nothing else matters except our God. Know also that you will be raised up again on the last day with a glorious body. Do your best to enlighten those around you to come to the Lord, Jesus and receive life. That’s the only assurance of this resurrection. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: The Lord is my life. I am not afraid anymore.
Heavenly Father, I know that my body will be raised up on the last day. Thank you for all you have prepared for me. I receive all that you have for me. In Jesus name. Amen.
