The white flowers blooming near the metal cross and the flame caught my eye as I stood on the church lawn.
A day to remember what Jesus did for us.
A day to remember what we cannot do for ourselves.
A day to remember that God can do all things—even bring the dead to life.
I know there must be a lot of people who have trouble considering that God can raise the dead.
Is it more difficult to believe that God can bring what is dead to life or to believe that God can create life?
Every living thing is a mystery too vast to completely understand.
Those who put their trust in Jesus will have eternal life.
This, too, is a mystery too vast to completely understand, yet we can trust in God’s power.
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
—I Corinthians 15:51-57
