Each New Day Is Like a Resurrection

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

In the Bible death is likened to sleep (John 11:11,14; Psalm 13:3; Job 3:11-13; 7:21; Daniel 12:2; Acts 7:60; I Thessalonians 4:14.), and resurrection is likened to awakening in the morning (Psalm 17:15; Daniel 12:2). This being true, a reversal of the analogy is certainly very appropriate. Since none of us are even promised tomorrow, each new day is sort of a “resurrection from death.” Each morning is a new beginning, a fresh breath of air.

 In 1728 William Law wrote beautifully regarding this similarity:

Receive every day as a resurrection from death, as a new enjoyment of life; meet every rising sun with such sentiments of God’s goodness, as if you had seen it, and all things, new-created upon your account: and under the sense of so great a blessing, let your joyful heart praise and magnify so good and glorious a Creator. – A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life (1728), William Law (1686-1761).
