A second powerful lesson from Christ’s resurrection is that we will be resurrected in the future. Similar to Jesus’ resurrection, we also will be resurrected. The resurrection of believers will occur at the time of the rapture. The rapture will happen with no pre-warnings as it will be unexpected. At this time, present-day believers will be resurrected into their glorified bodies, and deceased believers will be resurrected to their glorified bodies (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). This will be a marvelous event in the future, which will only happen because of the Lord.
With our resurrected, glorified bodies, we will no longer sin, get sick, or die. The Apostle Paul tells us this about our resurrected, glorified bodies, “So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body” (1 Corinthians 15:42-44). Our glorified bodies will be amazing, and they will be true gifts of the Lord.
Through Christ’s resurrection, we are taught the powerful lesson that we, too, will be resurrected. While it is hard to believe this from a human state of mind, we have to understand there are many spiritual truths of the Bible that defy logic. This is why they are known as miracles. Many Christians have a hard time believing in the miracles of Christ because they go against basic human logic. As believers, we must know that God is capable of anything, and nothing holds Him back from doing incredible, marvelous things.
