Resurrection Words Day 15: Glory


Day 15: Glory

Our final day of the Resurrection Words challenge. Let's look at the journey we have taken in exploring the resurrection life.

We began our journey looking at the resurrection life at the cross.  On the cross Christ gave His life to reconcile sinful man with a holy God. Through Christ's blood we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. But there is more good news: Jesus Christ has risen from the dead, giving us His Spirit, that we, too, may live new lives. Our baptism symbolizes our death and new life in Christ. We now live a new life, having died to self, we live for Christ through our union with Him by His Spirit. That Spirit is a deposit, guaranteeing our ultimate and complete transformation into the image of Christ. Our new life comes with many blessings: a living hope, the assurance of eternal life, and the power to live lives pleasing to God. This requires we gain a new mindset that views life from a heavenly perspective, focused on the life that is to come, while being transformed into the image of Christ, walking in freedom as children of the kingdom of God, who live a life of love imitating the life of Christ for God's glory!
"Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." Hebrew 13:20-21
