“The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” -1 John 2:17
Are you sick? Someday you’ll be healthy. Are you dying? Someday you’re going to be more alive than you’ve ever felt. Have you lost someone you love? You’re going to see them again. The promise of the resurrection is that we serve a good God who’s not going to just let you die. We serve a good God who gave his life for you and for me — for his kids. Who said there’s no reason I’m going to let them die. He’s come for you. Today and every day, you can receive the free gift of eternal life, and it is free! That same spirit that raised Christ from the dead is in you now. Heaven is in your body. And friends, that is such good news. Eternity dwells within you.
PRAYER: Thank you, God, for giving us eternal life even on Earth!
REFLECTION: Do you feel eternal life dwelling in you today?
