[Jesus continued his reply to the Sadducees about the resurrection:] "But now, as to whether there will be a resurrection of the dead — haven't you ever read about this in the Scriptures? Long after Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had died, God said, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' So he is the God of the living, not the dead."
When the crowds heard him, they were astounded at his teaching.
— Matthew 22:31-33 NLT
Yahweh, the LORD God Almighty, is the only true and living God. All others are pretenders, demons and false powers who cannot hold a candle to him. Our God is not only alive, but he is God of the living. He has the power to make and sustain life. Our relationship with him has no boundaries or barriers unless we erect them. He sent his Son Jesus to be the mediator between us and him and to bring us salvation, grace, adoption into his family, and the assured hope of spending eternity with him.
Because he lives, we cannot only face tomorrow, but our tomorrows will never end.
Holy and eternal Father, thank you that my life is hidden with Christ in you. Thank you that my future is secure in your nature and grace. Thank you that you have defeated sin and death in Jesus and have brought immortality to light and that you allow me to share in your eternal and divine nature through grace. Now, precious God, please empower me to display my faith in you, my relationship with you, and my confidence because of you, to my friends, family, and coworkers. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
