“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die“ John 11:25 (NIV)
You can try to renew yourself with new clothes, hair style, or cosmetic surgery, but only Jesus can renew your life. Despite our own changes on the outside we still need His changing on the inside. With Jesus, even in death we will find renewal as we transform from our fallen mortal life to our resurrected immortal life.
Like awakening from a night’s sleep, we will arise from the grave to an eternity with our saved loved ones and the hosts of Heaven forever. Not even death itself on earth can prevent us from the resurrected life when Jesus calls us forth as He did Lazarus.
Let’s pray today in thanksgiving that though the grave may take us it can not keep us.
