The best is yet to be

“Grow old with me!  The best is yet to be, the end of life for which the first was made.”~Robert Browning.  One of the characteristics of true spiritual life is hope.  It is an optimism born of promise, held by confident faith.  Paul knows how necessary it is for us to be CERTAIN of the resurrection.  For 58 verses in 1 Corinthians 15, he insists that we view it as a reality (not a myth).  He declares that, like Christ, our new bodies will be imperishable, glorious, powerful and spiritual!  (1 Corinthians 15:43-44)  Much of what God will say and show is still in the future.  This powerful and motivating vision of life and eternity and the enduring love of God motivates us to serve without surrender or complaint. ( read vs 58)  Better than Browning ever imagined, we are all moving toward something amazing and good.  Friends, do you have this certainty?  Easter is our story too!  The best is yet to be.
