Resurrection

Love has no end…so neither do you.

Wisdom 3:2-3

They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace.

How sad to think that death is the end.

How wonderful to believe that death is instead a transition…a rebirth to new life.

This was the message Jesus gave us through his death and resurrection.

Death does not have the final say. 

Love does.

Besides the example of Jesus, we have new information today that also gives us hope: the testimony of those who have experienced what is known as the “Near Death Experience.”

There are thousands of known cases of people who have had a medical situation that led to a clinical death and eventual resuscitation.

But these people, while clinically dead, experienced a heavenly realm of great love.

I have met several of these people…and their lives are now changed by the experience.

They are now living with a profound peace.

As the Jesuit priest and scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, “We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

So do not fear.

As Jesus stated, “And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it [on] the last day” (John 6:39).

Love wins now…and always.
