God’s not done with our bodies when we die.
The physical resurrection of our bodies seems to be something humans struggle to believe in. The Bible is full of evidence concerning a physical resurrection. The tomb of Jesus is empty. The resurrected Jesus has substance.
Jesus’ body was recognizable. Our bodies will be recognizable. Jesus’ body was something you could feel. Our bodies will be capable of touching and being touched. Jesus’ body could eat. Our bodies will be capable of eating. Jesus’ body will never wear out. Our bodies will never wear out.
When we trusted Christ, we were made alive. Christ’s sacrifice makes you new. You can begin to live a new life. Live like a newly enlivened being!

Listen as Pastor Steve discusses some reasons to believe in the resurrection.
It’s unnecessary. There are many religions without a resurrection narrative. Since it is so unbelievable, the disciples would have been better off to not include the resurrection, if it were not truth. It is unavoidable. From the beginning to the end, the resurrection is in theBible!
Belief in the resurrection changes us. The resurrection demonstrates Christ’s power. It gives us hope and confirms Christ’s atoning work.
A belief in the resurrection doesn’t look like an intellectual or mental assent. It isn’t even a faith in the event of the resurrection because even the demons believe there is one God.
Instead, belief in the resurrection looks like faith in Jesus Christ,faith in being with Christ. As well as faith in the journey of walking with Jesus.
