Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. – 1 Cor 15:42-44a

The Resurrection changes everything. Jesus died as the firsfruits (1 Cor 15:20,23). He sowed His own life into death so we could sprout from death into everlasting life! He made a way into Heaven so we could follow Him there and rest: face to face with God, for all eternity.

Your life on earth is not perfect; but your existence in heaven will be. Your earthly body is corrupt; but your heavenly body will never fail you. Your earthly heart makes mistakes; but it is impossible to make mistakes in heaven! Your earthly will may be weak, but in heaven you will lack nothing.

You have so much to look forward to: eternal life in heaven with God. Doesn’t everything else – all the trials you are experiencing now – pale in comparison?

Prayer:

Father, thank You for Resurrection life! Thank You that Jesus’ death on the Cross means I get to follow in His footsteps. I could have never made it to Heaven on my own; but Jesus will take me there.
