This is God’s ultimate Romans 8:28 triumph: Out of death, the Creator who loves us will bring life. In the face of Satan’s most powerful weapon against us, God works His most miraculous promises. Throughout the Bible, we see the theme that life will come out of death: Dying to self unites us with God; Jesus’ death gave us life forever; and even though our physical death is wrenching, our heavenly Father uses it to bring us to Himself, making it the most wonderful day of our lives. Even as we experience earthly sadness and loss, we have the joy of knowing that physical death is the doorway through which we step into even more and greater life.
God’s plan from before the beginning of the world was that His created people would have immortal lives in immortal bodies. God’s sticking to His plan. It’s our hope for the future, changing everything about today.
