“Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live” John 11:25 (ESV)
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 to an eternity with our loved ones and the hosts of Heaven forever. Not even death itself on earth can prevent us from that day when Jesus calls us forth from the grave.
Let’s pray today in thanksgiving that though the grave may take us it can not keep us.
