As Easter approaches we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. One of the words I like to use to describe the resurrection is “restoration”. Jesus validates every teaching, every healing and every human interaction He ever carried out during His time on Earth through His resurrection. He not only died on the cross for your sin and mine; He arose! He arose to defeat death and hell. His resurrection restored a bridge that leads straight to God. Mankind is no longer separated from God by sin.
Our relationship with God can be restored to all who call and believe on the name of Jesus Christ. His resurrection will restore the bodies of those who believe in Him. We who believe will be resurrected one day just as He demonstrated. Life does not end in a grave or a crypt, it is merely a parking place. Our bodies remain as our souls continue to their final destination (1 Corinthians 15:51-55). One day both our body and spirit will be reunited and “restored” to our eternal status. We will live in a restored Earth with Him and those who believed in Him.
Please know, for those who believe in Jesus as their Savior and Lord, this is not the best it will be because His best is yet to come (Revelation 21:1-4).
