Romans 8:11 - God Wants to Spend Eternity with You.
Romans 8:11 (NLT) The Spirit of God, who
raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just
as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he
will give life to your mortal bodies by this same
Spirit living within you.
Romans 8:11 (MSG) It stands to reason,
doesn't it, that if the alive-and-present God who
raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life,
he'll do the same thing in you that he did in
Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God
lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely
as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from
that dead life. With his Spirit living in you,
your body will be as alive as Christ's!
God never promised this life would be
fair. We live on a broken planet. Heaven is where
everything is done Gods way. Life on Earth just
doesnt work like that.
But what happens on this Earth isnt
all there is to life.
Youll spend 60, 80, or maybe 100 years
on Earth. Youll spend trillions of years in
eternity. If youve placed your faith in Jesus, the
Bible says youll spend eternity with God in
Thats one of the most important
reasons Christians should be joyful - God has given
us eternal life!
The Bible promises, If the Spirit of
God, who raised Jesus from death, lives in you,
then he who raised Christ from death will also
give life to your mortal bodies by the presence
of his Spirit in you (Romans 8:11 GNT).
Eternity will be amazing. What will
heaven be like? Youll be reunited with people
you love. Youll get rewards. Youll get
rest. Youll get responsibilities you love.
And, as 1 Corinthians 15:42 says,
youll get a new body because, even though your
earthly body will be buried in the ground, it will
be raised to live with God forever.
You were created because God wants a
family, and he wants to spend eternity with his
family. He wants to spend eternity with you and me!
That truth can bring you great joy. [Daily
