Bogard Press Daily Devotional-The Resurrection to Life and to Death

 

The Resurrection to Life and to Death

John 5:25-30

“Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation,” John 5:28, 29.

Friends, despite what all of the so-called science might try to teach us, we do not simply cease to exist when our physical lives end. Back in Genesis, we see where “the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). At the moment God breathed life into us, we became eternal beings, and each of us will live into eternity.

Someday Jesus will speak, and all the dead from the ages will rise from their graves. Those who have done evil, rejected Jesus, will arise to face a forever of eternal damnation and separation from God. This is horribly sad, but not the point today.

There is another resurrection, and that is the resurrection of “they that have done good” (verse 29) which means saved by God’s grace. Those raised to this resurrection of life will be rewarded for what was done for Jesus in this life under the power of the Holy Spirit, and they will spend eternity worshiping our Lord.

This knowledge of our eventual, eternal resurrection to life should cause a couple of things to happen in the life of every believer. First, no matter what life hands us, what is coming will make it all worthwhile. Second, if we are to be evaluated and rewarded for what we do in this life, we ought to be busy living productively for our Lord Jesus.

JUST A THOUGHT: Are you headed for the resurrection 
of life or the resurrection of death?
