Today's Good News


04/22 Luke 20:27-40
Then some Sadducees stepped forward — a group of Jews who say there is no resurrection after death. 28 They posed this question: “Teacher, Moses gave us a law that if a man dies, leaving a wife but no children, his brother should marry the widow and have a child who will be the brother’s heir. 29 Well, there were seven brothers. The oldest married and then died without children. 30 His brother married the widow, but he also died. Still no children. 31 And so it went, one after the other, until each of the seven had married her and died, leaving no children. 32 Finally, the woman died, too. 33 So tell us, whose wife will she be in the resurrection? For all seven were married to her!” 34 Jesus replied, “Marriage is for people here on earth. 35 But that is not the way it will be in the age to come. For those worthy of being raised from the dead won’t be married then. 36 And they will never die again. In these respects they are like angels. They are children of God raised up to new life. 37 But now, as to whether the dead will be raised — even Moses proved this when he wrote about the burning bush. Long after Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had died, he referred to the Lord as ‘the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ 38 So he is the God of the living, not the dead. They are all alive to him.” 39 “Well said, Teacher!” remarked some of the teachers of religious law who were standing there. 40 And that ended their questions; no one dared to ask any more.
We have questions. The Lord gives us some answers. He can’t answer some of our questions because we wouldn’t understand the answer. The Lord loves you. He will take care of you from your birth in the family of God until forever. He will walk with you, talk with you and guide you in the way you should go. He cannot be manipulated and He has given us rules to live by. We choose how we will live. Choose to live close to Jesus.
