A Haiku - Resurrection

"And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." (John 11:25-26)

A Haiku - Resurrection

Live well, die once, live.

Believe and live the promise.

True believers know.


As with the flower and its seed....

so also, can life give life to life.
so also, can life give life to life. | Source

"Old" or "New," both testaments bear proof that man shall live again.

This life is more than just "dust to dust."

How do we know that?

Some know it only by faith, but others have accepted the written testimonies of those who have seen, even touched those who have been resurrected, and some by their own experiences.

Should it seem strange that our Heavenly Father's greatest creations should have "a spark of immortality" in them, and that their sojourn here in mortality is to gain a body in His image, be tested and tried, and give up that body for a perfected immortal one?

Does it not even seem logical by man's reasoning that says "this cannot be all there is"?

If it was to be all there is, what of knowledge, experience, and the tests and trials? What of love, God's love, the gift of His only Son?

Why is it that the holy scriptures have been preserved for thousands of years as proof and comfort for our generation and the generations past and future?

Believe what you will. Trust or not, but dust? We go the way of all life, but believers know where we are going, and it is glorious.

Won't you come along, too?

Thanks for your expression of faith in the resurrection. "The blessed hope" is what the saints call it.

MsDora - More than a hope, a promise with commandments that we live and have our being in him, and believe in him who atoned for us that we might never die.
