Alive Forevermore

Resurrection is beyond our comprehension. We just have to accept it by faith, because it involves death. Perhaps we cannot understand resurrection because we do not yet understand what it means to die to self. We can only accept that resurrection from death to life is true. Jesus demonstrated it, as well as He promised resurrection from the dead for those who believe in Him.

“I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.” [Revelation 1:18]

Nothing overcomes resurrection ~ certainly not death, the greatest foe. Time does not even negate the power of resurrection. Lazarus was without life for four days. “Though he may die, he shall live.” [John 11:25b]

The Apostle Paul “determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” [I Corinthians 2:2] His primary emphasis was on the centrality of the cross in all that he believed. No doubt what Jesus was willing to pay determined its value…and served to prove His enormous love for us. It is through resurrection that God demonstrates that we are His endearing affection.

“Resurrection not only raised up Christ, it also vindicated God as a good Father.” [Bob Sorge] He promised, “I will be a Father to you.” [2 Corinthians 6:18] In turn, Jesus showed ultimate loyalty in submitting to the Cross of Calvary. Therein, in the greatest suffering imaginable, lies the greatest love ever shown to mankind.

“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” [2 Corinthians 1:20]
