Life after death?

Re: Verse reading–Ezekiel 37:1-14 (day six) 
“He asked me, ‘Son of man, can these bones live?’  I said, ‘O Sovereign Lord, you alone know.’ ” (v 3)  Is there life after death?  “Yes” is the unwavering answer of the Christian faith.  Dead people, dead marriages, dead churches can be resurrected by the Spirit of God.  Ezekiel is less certain.  He knows God CAN.  He is somewhat reluctant to declare that God WILL.  Those of us who live on this side of the empty tomb are more confident.  “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. . .(after Him) those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end. . .(and) the last enemy to be abolished is death.”  (1 Corinthians 15:20, 23-24)  Christian, are you confident in the reality of life after death?  Does this confidence change the way you live and make decisions and face challenges?  He is Risen!  Do you believe we all will be?
