Devotion for Saturday in the Second Week in Lent

But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

~ Romans 8:10-11

Our bodies are dead because of sin, yet the Holy Spirit gives life to our bodies. We will physically die and be buried, but that is not the end. Praise God! If we follow Jesus, we will live forever in resurrected bodies. We don’t know what those bodies will be like, but they will be real and they will be glorious. But those who don’t love the Lord and take Jesus as their Savior will live forever in agony. That part is easy to ignore, but that doesn’t affect its truth. I pray for those in my life who don’t know Jesus, so we will not be separated forever.

Lord God, when someone I love dies, I miss them. I still miss my parents and Jack, though they have been dead for years (nearly twenty-four years for my dad). But I feel Your peace knowing that one day we will all be together and will never be separated again. Thank You for giving us eternity with our loved ones and above all with You. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.

These daily devotions are available in a book The Grace of God, with all profits donated to Love for the Least to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world. L4L shares the Good News of the Gospel with the least and unreached by making disciples of Jesus who make disciples (2 Tim 2:2) and by helping to meet the physical needs of the poorest of the poor.
