2-Minute Multiplier: Speaking of the Resurrection
I’m guessing talking about the resurrection with your friends is not a regular occurrence. Perhaps because the topic doesn’t come up naturally. Or perhaps you’re unsure how to explain it if it did.
While not necessarily excited about it, you and your friends probably agree your current body will only last so long. Alzheimer’s, glaucoma and carcinoma are already lurking in the shadows.
Your buddy will likely nod at this point.
At the same time, your dying body’s got a soul that lasts forever.
Most of your neighbors will also agree that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to you being you. You’re more than just a body with red hair and long limbs. There’s something immeasurable and intangible.
The Bible calls that distinguishing reality your soul. Everyone’s got one. And it will never die.
Timeless and eternal, your soul provides the philosophical machinery that leads to discussions of beauty and value. It’s what feeds your longing for something more, for stories of good, for evil never winning.
Your soul is a trace of your divine origins. It brings a taste of hope to that part of you that’s dying.
Resurrection addresses both your eternal and your dated, promising a day where dying doesn’t exist. A day where you’ll still be you without traces of disease or disappointment.
Resurrection really is relevant. Especially when dying is so real.
