Christ rose first; then when Christ comes back, all his people will become alive again. 1 Corinthians 15:23
God has made a promise to us. "I will come back … ," he assures us. Yes, the rocks will tumble. Yes, the ground will shake. But the child of God needn't fear—for the Father has promised to take us to be with him.
But dare we believe the promise? Dare we trust his loyalty? Isn't there a cautious part of us that wonders how reliable these words may be? …
How can we know he will do what he said? How can we believe he will move the rocks and set us free?
Because he's already done it once.
