There are a lot of different ideas out there about what the soul is, so we think it’s about time we all did a bit of soul searching in the Bible.
This week we’ll conclude our “Soul Searching” series be taking a look at 5 thing the Bible says about the hope that God offers us:
- The Hope of the Bible is the resurrection of the dead (Acts 23:6)
- At the resurrection, the dead will be raised and judged by Jesus. (2 Timothy 4:1; Daniel 12:2)
- Eternal life will be a gift of Grace to those who know, believe, love, and try to obey God. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-10; John 17:3; 20:31; James 1:12; Romans 6:16-22)
- Those given immortality will inherit the Kingdom of God on earth. (Matthew 25:34; Psalm 37:11)
- Ultimately, those given immortality will be there when God will finally dwell with men, wiping all tears from their eyes, and make all things new. (Revelation 21:1-5)
