THE STORY OF JESUS: Luke 20:27-40
“Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question.” (Luke 20:36)
Death is such a ‘normal’ part of life for us, we cannot imagine no death.
We know and are learning many things about this life.
But the life that follows the final resurrection is beyond our ability to grasp.
Trying to understand life after death is like a child who just learned their numbers.
How can they explain the theory of relativity – it’s just beyond their grasp.
One day we will see it, experience it, and have a sense of it.
“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12)
The Saduccees were thinking they understood reality from their finite vantage point.
I am no different; I am always trying to explain things from how I see them.
For example, I’ve always assumed that marriage would be a part of that next life.
Jesus shows that only God stands beyond time to know what life will one day be like.
Only God can fully know and explain the mysteries of life and eternal life.
What life will be like then is a mystery, but one thing for sure – it will be awesome!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, forgive me for trying to figure out things that are well beyond me. Help me to stay humble as I think my thoughts about You, and as I share them with others.
