Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Aren't you glad that not even death can stop us from hearing Jesus' promised word to us: "RISE!"? We will hear his voice and live with him forever. Like Lazarus, we will come out of the grave and be free (John 11:32-44). Like the little girl Jesus took by the hand raised from the dead (Mark 5:35-42), we too will rise to life. Unlike Lazarus and the little girl, we will be free of death forever, alive to share in the Lord's presence and glory! Such hope lifts my spirit as I await our Lord's coming; how about you?

My Prayer...

Thank you, Almighty God, that Jesus' resurrection demonstrated your power to destroy death. I have confidence in your Son's promises to return, to raise me from the dead if I die before his return, and to take me home to be with you. In the Savior's name and authority, I pray. Amen.
