When we think of the bigger picture of life, often our focus remains within a timeline that extends from birth to death here on earth. It is important to realize that there is much more to this life than what's between the cradle and the grave. We must consider what is beyond by letting the resurrection of Christ impact the way we think about life.
If the resurrection weren't real, then nothing here on earth would matter. But when Jesus died on the cross and conquered the grave three days later, we were removed from the lineage of Adam - the family tree of sin - and born into the family tree of Christ where we have the opportunity to live eternally in heaven. As we turn our focus to the power and significance of the resurrection, let us be encouraged to live life with an eternal perspective.
1 Corinthians 15:19-33
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
1 Peter 1:13
Live your life with an eternal perspective because eternity matters.
