of the religious world professing Christianity will specially
celebrate our risen Christ next Sunday.
We will do it as well!
Then again, we commemorate his death and his resurrection
each Lordís day.
While we do such each week, it should never become old nor
taken for granted.
remembering our Saviorís resurrection, it is good to remember
After all, our Saviorís resurrection is Godís way of
giving us hope for our own.
The reward of our resurrection is to finally be face to
face with our eternal Creator/heavenly Father.
The Resurrection Gives Us Great Hope

Itís greater than the beginning of creation. Gen.
Itís greater than The Word of God taking on flesh. Jn.
It is Godís greatest manifestation of His love, promise
and assurance to mankind. 1
Christ we also have a hope of resurrection to eternal life.
Everything He promised to His people of old (Israelites)
Ultimately, God promised His Son as our sin-sacrifice and
delivered on it. Jn.
We have every reason to believe we shall be raised up to
Him eternally as well. Rom.
Our Reward: Face to Face With God
one has ever seen our God. Exo.
33:20; 1 Tim. 6:15-16
we can only see Him by faith:
Through His Creation. Acts
Through His word (the Bible). Heb.
Through The Word that became flesh. Heb.
1:1-2; Jn. 1:1
You Want to See Him?
If we want to see our God face to face we have only one
option: die to self and be raised up in the name of Christ. Rom.
