Raised

A little girl was quite sad and upset because her beloved cat had died. Her mother tried to cheer her up by pointing out that her cat was with God in heaven now.

“Really?” the little girl asked.

“I think so,” her mother replied.

After thinking about that for a few seconds, the little girl asked, “Why in the world would God want a dead cat?”

Little girls aren’t the only ones who sometimes have a problem comprehending what it means to be resurrected. That’s why the Scriptures urge us to focus on the resurrected Jesus and to reflect on the fact that Christians, too, have in a very real sense already been raised to walk with him.

“Having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead…Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.”—Colossians 2:12; 3:1.
