Everyday Promises – 204

Called by Jesus

But your dead will live, Lord; their bodies will rise— let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy— Isaiah 26:19 NIV

In 2021, I was able to make a trip through the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. We often came upon old graveyards out in the wastelands. Pioneer life was extremely difficult in this area because there was no consistent rainfall. Some years there would be abundant rain, but most often there were long years of drought in between. Many early settlers lost there lives battling the extreme elements. It is the destiny of all who live on earth to die but Jesus has promised that death will not be the end for those who love him. One day, John 5:25 tells us, the righteous dead will hear the voice of Jesus, when he comes in the clouds, and wake up. What rejoicing will fill the air on that day. Keep this promise close to your heart for it will surely be fulfilled soon.
