The Resurrection of the Just

bride

Luke 14:14 And you shall be blessed … for you shall be recompensed at the resurrection of the just. (KJVER)

THIS IS THE BELIEVER’S GLORIOUS PROSPECT, GOD’S SURE PROMISE, because Jesus rose from the dead. When He appears, the dead in Christ shall rise first. They shall rise incorruptible, powerful, spiritual, and glorious, in full conformity to His glorious body. His voice will rouse them, His power will raise them, and His glory will surround and adorn them. They shall be like Him, for they shall see Him as He is. What a glorious dawning will the resurrection morning be! How deeply we are interested in it, and yet, how little it exercises our thoughts, or excites our anticipations. It may be the very next morning we shall see, for we may die in our sleep; or for aught we can tell, Jesus may come tomorrow. Are we ready? Are we justified before God through faith in Jesus? Are we just with men, rendering to all their due? The resurrection of the just will be most glorious; they shall come forth perfect in holiness and beauty. We ought often to think of that day, to prepare for it daily, to live and act as if it was just at hand, to do as Paul did, who laboured, suffered and prayed, “If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection.—Daily Remembrancer April 6 Evening
