Resurrection Hope

We are getting so close to the time that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As you prepared your heart for Christmas; likewise, prepare your heart for Easter—the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is the capstone in the arch of Christianity.

 

There is nothing more significant than the reality of Christ’s resurrection, which insures that we too will be resurrected, and our resurrected bodies are going to be supernatural. They’re not going to be simply natural, and in that sense, they will be imperishable, incorruptible, and immortal.

 

Our resurrected bodies shall be spirit-dominated. They shall be dominated by the Holy Spirit, rather than by hedonistic sensations or natural proclivities. In other words, our spiritual bodies will be completely ruled by the Spirit, rather than enslaved to present sinful natures.

 

And then of course, we’re going to be sin-free. Although Christians are declared positionally righteous before God, we continue to struggle against our sinful natures, but when we receive our spiritual bodies, what we are now in position, we will then be in practice. John, the prophet of Patmos, put it this way: “Nothing impure will ever enter [the new heaven and the new earth], nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life” (Revelation 21:27, NIV)

 

If your name is written in the Lamb’s book of life, you are among all people blessed, because you do not have a peaceful way to come to terms with death. You have something far greater, a way to overcome death and disease and decay and destruction, through the resurrection. You, like your Savior, will one day soon experience that reality, and if that is true, how then should we live?
