Life Abundant And Everlasting!
1 Corinthians 15: 20 – 28
“But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in turn: Christ, the first fruits; then, when He comes, those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For He “has put everything under his feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.”
God, Your plan of salvation for a dying world is awesome, astounding and full of grace and glory. You are brilliant, and even in our greatest thoughts of You, You are greater still. Your thoughts are high and we can not attain unto them or even begin with our finite minds to comprehend all that You have for us. Your merciful plan of reconciliation, and sacrificial love through the death and shed blood of Christ on the cross, unites us and ushers us into Your Holy, Holy, Holy presence. As we enter humbly, before You we know that all is well with our soul, and indeed as Christ died, rose again and now lives to intercede for us, our flesh will die but in this life we live with life abundant and in death we live with life everlasting!! What Hope, What glory, What victory is ours!
If it’s over our head, it’s under God’s feet.
