Read 1 Corinthians 15:19-26

19 If our hope in Christ is good for this life only and no more,[a] then we deserve more pity than anyone else in all the world.

20 But the truth is that Christ has been raised from death, as the guarantee that those who sleep in death will also be raised. 21 For just as death came by means of a man, in the same way the rising from death comes by means of a man. 22 For just as all people die because of their union with Adam, in the same way all will be raised to life because of their union with Christ. 23 But each one will be raised in proper order: Christ, first of all; then, at the time of his coming, those who belong to him. 24 Then the end will come; Christ will overcome all spiritual rulers, authorities, and powers, and will hand over the Kingdom to God the Father. 25 For Christ must rule until God defeats all enemies and puts them under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be defeated will be death.

Think

Verse 19 If our hope in Christ is good for this life only and no more, then we deserve more pity than anyone else in all the world.

Do you focus only on life in this world?  Or do you hope in Christ for the life to come?

Pray

Lord fill my imagination with the hope of a future with you in heaven for us.
