The resurrection of Jesus Christ changes everything – or it should!
When Jesus returns, all those who are in him will be raised by God. On that Great Day, our bodies of sin and death will be replaced with heavenly bodies, and we will finally enjoy the fullness of eternal life.
However, God’s Word declares that, for those who are in Christ, our resurrection has already begun. When Jesus was resurrected, we were resurrected with him. Our new and eternal life in Christ has already begun! Everything is different now for us in Christ.
This Sunday, and next week in our Daily Worship Devotions, we return to 1 Corinthians 15 and pick up with the second part of this chapter in verses 12-34. So, as you prepare your heart for Corporate Worship, take some time to read, reflect, and meditate on 1 Corinthians 15:12-34.
As you do that, take some time to also read, reflect on, and sing Yet Not I But Through Christ in Me as it reminds us of the resurrection glory and blessings that are ours now on a daily basis! We will sing this together on Sunday as our closing song. What a glorious reality! Our resurrection in Christ is the assurance of our salvation!
