An Eternal Weight Of Glory: Life After Death

What happens after we die? In 2 Corinthians 5:6-8, Paul explains that, for Christians, death is a transition into Christ's presence. The transition happens immediately at the moment one dies. Understanding this, our eternal hope in Christs shapes our attitudes about death and life. Have confidence with respect to life after death. Don't give up following Jesus in your life before death.

An Eternal Weight Of Glory: Our Bodies

In 2 Corinthians 5, Paul unpacks the future "eternal weight of glory" that is presently unseen but upon which followers of Jesus are to fix their eyes, especially in the context of our physcial bodies wasting away as we experience affliction in this life. One aspect of that eternal weight of glory is the eternal, imperishable body that Christians will be guaranteed after death. Christians will receive this glorified body, a transformation of our current physical bodies, during the resurrection at Christ's return. This doctrine highlights the importance of our body, and challenges us to live out a good theology of the body now. Realize that your body is an important part of being human. So, watch your language. Your body is a critical component of the "real" you and the "ultimate healing" is not death, but rather, resurrection. Take care of the body you have by not accelerating its decay through foolish decisions. Finally, look forward to your glorified body. Even as you current body is "wasting away," this very fact should remind that a more glorious future awaits the follower of Jesus in accordance with the promises and grace of God.

When You're Trying To Get Through To The Lord (Part 2)

After David appealed to the Lord on the basis of God's justice in Psalm 17:1-5, David appealed to the Lord on the basis of God's love in Psalm 17:1-6. David knew that the Lord would keep His promises and that He had come through in the past. David depended on the Lord and was confident that the Lord cared for him. So, David believed that the Lord wouldn't just stand by and do nothing. Finally, David hoped in a glorious future with the Lord. So, consider God's love as you approach your heavenly Father in prayer. You can trust Him to keep His promises. You can count on His parental care. You can hope in a glorious future in His presence.

When You're Trying To Get Through To The Lord (Part 1)

David appealed to the Lord on the basis of a blameless life. David was relating to the Lord through the theological framework that our sin can hinder our prayers. So, consider your sin as you approach a holy God in prayer. The video referenced in the sermon can be found at: https://www.ignitermedia.com/products/1346-plastic-jesus
