I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:2-4
Through the years, I’ve fielded questions about the bodily resurrection of Jesus and what it means for us. The resurrection of Jesus gives us hope! Not hope in an uncertain sense (like I hope the Braves will win the World Series this year), but real, solid, certain hope.
This Sunday, I’m going to preach about the promises God gives us about our eternal future. What happens when we die? Is Jesus really returning? What about our resurrected bodies? Is there a day of judgment we should be worried about?
While we do not have all the pieces to the puzzle (please avoid teachers who say they do!), there are some foundational truths we can count on.
See you Sunday,
