“…and on the third day He will be raised up.” (Portion of Matthew 20:19 NASB)
For now, it does not get any better than that! Because He lives, we have hope for a better forever. In time, the freshness of the flesh decays and the spirit returns to its Creator. The simple truth! Jesus has given us peace with God. How amazing is that? Peace with God changes everything. Like a healing balm, peace pours over our soul freeing us from being earthbound. I’m sure you have your favorites.
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let’s hold firmly to our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things just as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let’s approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace for help at the time of our need.” (Hebrews 4:14-16 NASB)
No lengthy preaching today, just a reminder we need not be earthbound. We can approach the throne of grace.
