“God…of the Living”
Fill us so much with your life, O God, that we are fully alive now even as we will be fully alive for eternity.
Fill us so much with the life of the resurrected Lord, O God, that we will live the resurrected life now as surely as we will live it after our own resurrection.
We praise you, O God, that you are God of the living…that you are our God and that we truly live in you!
“Jesus answered them, ‘You are wrong, because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. And as for the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was said to you by God, “I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob”? He is God not of the dead, but of the living.’ And when the crowd heard it, they were astounded at his teaching.” (Matthew 22:29-33)
