The gift of new life, of eternal life, is the gift of the risen
Christ. It is the promise of Jesus. It was true for Dorcas in
Joppa. It was true for those “who have come out of the great
ordeal” in the Revelation vision. It is true for us and for all
the baptized: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all
the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Acts 9:36-43; Psalm 23; Revelation 7:9-17; John 10:22-30
