1. Do Not Be Led Astray (v29-34)
2. Transformed, Not Disembodied or Reanimated (v35-41)
3. Spiritual Bodies Like Christ (v42-49)
Think of the most influential people in history: Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Hitler, Churchill, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs.
For me, one of them has to be Queen Elizabeth I. When she died aged 69, she had ruled England for 44 glorious years. Imagine what you could do in that time! Yet, when she was dying, she is reported to have said, ‘It is over. I have come to the end of if – the end, then end. To have only one life, and to have done with it! To have lived, and loved, and triumphed; and now to know it is over! One may defy everything else but this.’
If even kings, queens, and rulers die feeling their lives are unfinished, what about us?
How many of your projects are still unfinished? What problems will you never solve? What relationships will you leave unrepaired? What will you leave incomplete?
Do you unfinished business with God?
If we don’t know the purpose of our lives, we’ll live and die unfinished lives.
But not Jesus. When He died, He cried out, “It is finished!” (v30). Jesus knew the purpose of His life. He finished it. And because He did, our lives have purpose too. So long as we don’t have unfinished business with God. So, what difference does Jesus’ finished life make to my life and your life?
