"When people rise from death, there will be no marriage. People will not be married to each other. All people will be like angels in heaven."
— Mark 12:25 NLT
Illustration of Mark 12:25 NLT — "When people rise from death, there will be no marriage. People will not be married to each other. All people will be like angels in heaven."

Key Thought

With so much fascination on angels the last couple of decades, this promise should simply astound us. Our being, our relationships, and our lives will be brought to a higher level of existence after the resurrection. Glory awaits those who belong to Christ. Joy is our future. Victory is our destiny. Transformation into perfection lies ahead. Our eyes will behold our Savior and we will be like the angels. Praise God for such a future. Hallelujah!

Today's Prayer

O Father, give my heart wings to soar on the faith of such wonderful words. Make them more than words to me. Help me believe and embrace my future with you with great and triumphant joy. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
