“We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you” (2 Corinthians 4:14 NLT).


“We know.” This faith we have is based on the historical resurrection of Jesus. We look at this fact, believing it, and this faith becomes like confident knowledge. Believing that God raised Jesus in the past, we also believe that He will raise us with Jesus in the future. Our future hope is anchored in this already-fulfilled past. Ours is not blind faith or empty hope. “We know” that the same God who raised Christ, will raise us too.
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You for our resurrection hope in Christ. We can live this day with confident expectation of our future estate with You. Help us to throw off any hindrances as we run life’s race, knowing that our reward is kept in heaven with You. Thank You for another day to live. Strengthen us to live it for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.
