Jesus came to fulfill what couldn't be done by anyone else. Because of his sacrificial death on the cross for our sins, we have a bridge from sinful man back to Holy God.
Physical death isn't the end. It is the beginning of a new kind of life in eternity.
Jesus told us in God's Word, the Bible:
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
He also told us:
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
As believers in Jesus Christ, we can have the assurance of eternal life through God's provision of mercy and grace via the cross at Calvary. Christ's resurrection to life proves that He is who He said he is, the Son of God, Lord and Savior of mankind.
The Mansion of HeavenThis world, however beautiful,was never meant to beThe place that we would call our homefor all eternity.And though we would not choose to leave,a loving God knows best,And in His time,He lifts us to a place of peace and rest.For He has built a mansionwhere His children will abide,Free from pain and sorrow,forever at His side.He said He'd never leave usto face our trials alone,And though sometimes we fail Him,He never fails His own.And even when our choicesare less than He would ask,He knows when human courageis unequal to the task.We cannot judge what happens,though tears and questions start--We only see what's visible--God sees into the heart...And though there may be many thingsthat we cannot explain,We can be sure it breaks His heartto see His children's pain.In loving arms,He bears us to a quiet place apartWere He mends the wounded spiritand heals the broken heart.And though these ones we love so muchAnd passed into a better worldof majesty and light,Someday we'll be togetherin our Father's home above,Where we'll thank Him for His mercyand praise Him for His love.
