As Christians, we believe Jesus rose from the dead, but what actually happened at his resurrecrtion? What will happen at ours? Jesus did not return to earth to lead an everyday physical life, and neither will we, for neither Jesus nor we will be subject to time and space. However, he definitely rose, for his spirit and message remain the same, and we will also rise insofar as we reflect him. Twenthy years later, Paul writes that Jesus appeared to him en route to Damascus. So, with our perceptive eye of faith, we can also see the Lord in nature, in bread and wine, in the word, and especially in each other. He is not here physically, but spiritually he lives in each of us, and so spiritually we also will never die.
