PROMISE 9: This Temporary Tomb

Death has been swallowed up in victory. 1 Corinthians 15:54

Make this promise one of the blocks in your foundation. View death through the lens of Christ’s resurrection. The grave brings sorrow, for sure. But it need not bring despair. The tomb could not hold Christ, and since Christ is in you, you will not long be in your tomb. “In keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells” (2 Peter 3:13).

This is God’s promise. He will reclaim his creation. He is a God of restoration, not destruction. He is a God of renewal, redemption, regeneration, resurrection. God loves to redo and restore.

“I am making everything new!” he announced (Rev. 21:5)
