True God

There came to him some Sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection, and they asked him a question, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man must take the widow and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife, and died without children. And the second and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. Afterward the woman also died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife.” And Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for all live to him.” Then some of the scribes answered, “Teacher, you have spoken well.” For they no longer dared to ask him any question.

True God
There are many false gods vying for our attention. All of them are the same in that what they offer will only last in this life, if even that. For all other gods are mute and dumb without any power. They are self-made gods that we invent to justify ourselves before one another. But all these gods are only gods of the dead. Jesus demonstrates that our Lord is the God of the living. The patriarchs, Abrahman, Issac, Jacob, and all the rest, though dead from an earthly view, are still alive with God. Our human reason dares not come between us and God’s sure promise of salvation and life eternal through His Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. Jesus’ certain resurrection shows that He is our living God and hope of life. Therefore we give thanks and praise to the one and only true Lord of life, for the resurrection promised in His Word. May He grant us faithfulness to the Last Day.
