Our Certain Resurrection
“Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead.” Isaiah 26:19 (ESV)
Our Lord lives, His tomb is empty, and His grieving followers have the ultimate hope in a certain resurrection. The believer knows the sadness of the grave but they also know the Lord who overcame it. Just as Jesus called forth Lazarus from the tomb so the day is coming when He will call all His disciples forth from the grave. On that day we will certainly exclaim, Oh death where is your sting, where is your victory now?
Let’s pray today that we will find hope in knowing we serve a living Savior who conquered death.
