    I think for many the resurrection is the promise of a future event, eternal life. Because of the resurrection I can overcome death. It is more than that. It is the promise of new life now, but we have to “grow up into this new life.” That is what Discipleship is all about.

    I think the reason we miss this point is that we don’t realize that without Christ we are dead both now and for eternity. The resurrection is a current event and a promise for the future. When we believe in Christ, we share in His resurrection and we are born again and will live eternally. In order to fully benefit from our resurrection (new birth) we must grow up in Christ and that involves spiritual discipline, spending time daily reading and studying His Word, prayer and meditation, and worship (service). Lord let it be so with me!
