Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 2:1-10 (day three)
“God raised us up with Christ.”  When God raised Jesus from the dead, he did not raise a ghost, or a zombie, or a metaphor.  He raised a human being—a divine human being, to be sure, but a human being nonetheless.  That was new.  God’s power had raised the dead before, but never to life everlasting in a renewed physical body.  There is now a way for human beings to live as human beings—that is, beings with both a physical body and a spirit—forever.  Jesus was the first.  And because God the Son lives forever as a resurrected human being, so can all of us who count on Christ.  When God raised Jesus, he raised the possibility of eternal life for the entire human race.
