Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Jesus said… “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26 ESV)
Hymn ELH 525:3,5 I Know of a Sleep in Jesus’ Name
I know of a morning, bright and fair
When tidings of joy shall wake us,
When songs from on high shall fill the air
And God to His glory take us,
When Jesus shall bid us rise from sleep–
How joyous that hour of waking!
God’s Son to our graves then takes His way,
His voice hear all tribes and nations;
The portals are rent that guard our clay,
And moved are the sea’s foundations.
He calls out aloud, “Ye dead, come forth!”
In glory we rise to meet Him.
Jesus, Savior, You have promised to raise me and all believers to eternal life with You in Heaven. Forgive my sins and strengthen my faith in Your promise of resurrection and eternal life. Amen.
