Saturday Song: Lenny Kravitz, "The Resurrection"

What a joy the resurrection is to us Christians! Without it, we have no hope of our own resurrection when Jesus returns. Better still, we'll have bodies which will live forever and they won't be plagued with sin and death. All this was accomplished by his rising from the dead.

Lenny Kravitz sang about the resurrection on his Circus album. Here's the song for you to hear.

The resurrection is crucial to Christianity. Look at what Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:19 (KJV). "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable."

Jesus is our hope of resurrection. As he told Martha when her brother Lazarus was dead for four days in John 11:25 KJV), "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:"

Though our physical bodies die, our spirits will be reunited with our glorified bodies. Paul reminded the church in 1 Corinthians 15:42 (KJV), "So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:"

This isn't a strictly New Testament doctrine either. Old Testament saints believed they would be resurrected. Job 19:26 (KJV) plainly states, "And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:"

How wonderful it is then that we who believe in Christ aren't abandoned by him. He rose from the dead and after teaching his disciples for forty days, he ascended into heaven.

If you'd like to comment on this post and the song, please do so. Also, have a blessed Resurrection Sunday!
