Our Bodily Resurrection

Devotional by Dr. Charles Stanley

1 Corinthians 15:20-26

Adam and Eve's disobedience led to a spiritual death and resulted in three consequences: separation from God, corruption of man's nature, and spiritual condemnation unto death.

However, just as death came through one man, Adam, eternal life comes to us through another Man - the Lord Jesus Christ. The spiritual condemnation that was once ours was settled at Calvary's cross. It was there that Jesus took on Himself the sins of all mankind.

Through His death, our sins - past, present, and future - are forgiven. But God's grace does not stop here. There is more to come. One day we will be with Him in heaven. This is His eternal promise to all who believe in Him.

Death could not hold Jesus in the grave. God raised Him, and He is now with the Father in heaven. Just as Jesus promised, He sent His Spirit to abide with us. The greatest truth of the resurrection is not just in the fact that it happened. It is in the glorious reality that Jesus Christ is alive today. Those who believe in Him as Savior abide with Him in loving fellowship.

This Easter, as you sing traditional hymns of praise, pay close attention to the words: "Up from the grave he arose, with a mighty triumph o'er his foes; he arose a victor from the dark domain, and he lives forever with his saints to reign!" ("Low in the Grave He Lay" by Robert Lowry).
