Like the Resurrection

As Jacob and his family prepared to go down to Egypt from the land of Canaan, God appeared to the man and said, “I am God, the God of your father; do not fear to go down to Egypt, for I will make of you a great nation there. I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also surely bring you up again; and Joseph will put his hand on your eyes” (Genesis 46:3, 4).
Jacob believed for twenty-two years that his son was dead. Then Jacob learned that Joseph as alive and they would see each other again. See yourself as Jacob. Can you even begin to describe the emotions that would run through your heart? What would that be like?
Listen, if your loved ones who have died were followers of Christ, and if you follow Christ, you shall see each other again. What do that you think that will be like?
