For those who’ve had loved ones go on ahead of them to their home in glory, today (Resurrection Sunday) truly is THE DAY that brings eternal hope that we’ll soon meet again.
“If the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: and if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. But now is Christ risen from the dead…” 1 Corinthians 15:17-20
The resurrection of Jesus is not wishful thinking to make loved ones feel better. Jesus not only historically died, but historically raised Himself from the dead. Praise God, He is the alive forevermore! (For several excellent articles on the historical evidence of Jesus’ resurrection, go to: Resurrection of Christ.)
In Revelation 1:18, Jesus reminds us, “I am He that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
