designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will
die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a
to live with honor before God and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause,
to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that
will echo in eternity.

I am the resurrection and the
life. The one who believes in me will live, even
though they die. John 11:25
cold, snowy winters, the hope of spring sustains
those of us who live in Michigan. May is the month
when that hope is rewarded. The transformation is
remarkable. Limbs that look lifeless on May 1 turn
into branches that wave green leafy greetings by
month’s end. Although the change each day is
imperceptible, by the end of the month the woods in
my yard have changed from gray to green.
has built into creation a cycle of rest and renewal.
What looks like death to us is rest to God. And just
as rest is preparation for renewal, death is
preparation for resurrection.
I love watching
the woods awaken every spring, for it reminds me
that death is a temporary condition and that its
purpose is to prepare for new life, a new beginning,
for something even better. “Unless a kernel of wheat
falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a
single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds”
While pollen is a springtime
nuisance when it coats my furniture and makes people
sneeze, it reminds me that God is in the business of
keeping things alive. And after the pain of death,
He promises a glorious resurrection for those who
believe in His Son.

resurrection: 1 Corinthians 15:35-58.

Every new leaf of springtime is a reminder
of our promised resurrection.
INSIGHT: John 11:1–27 is the third time the
Gospels record Jesus raising someone from the dead.
In Mark 5:22–43 Jesus goes to the house of a Jewish
leader named Jairus and raises his 12-year-old
daughter. In Luke 7:11–17 Jesus interrupted a
funeral procession in the town of Nain and brought a
widow’s dead son back to life. John 11 is unique
since it is the only time a name is given for the
resurrected person. In this case Lazarus, an
abbreviation of Eleazar, was brought back from the
dead. His name means “one whom God helps.”

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
