and they will mock Him, and scourge Him, and spit on Him, and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again." Mark 10:34
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Jesus explained to the multitude that they who embrace Him are to be the salt of the earth:
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Matthew 5:13
Our seasoning should be so distinctive that it's very savor should attract others to taste of it. This can't be possible if our seasoning is non-distinctive from the world. When you look at the resurrection of Jesus; when He emerged on the other side of death, Mary Magdalene did not recognize Him. And so, we too, as believers and followers of Jesus, should be distinguishable from our former self.
But as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 1 Peter 1:15-16
After His death by crucifixion, Jesus was buried but He did not remain in the tomb. The miraculous resurrection of Jesus is recorded in the books of Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, and John 20.
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:5-6
And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. Mark 16:6
Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said , he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. John 20:19-20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. (Luke 1:33)
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)
We have much to look forward to at the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Until then, we are told to come out from among the world:
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate , saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, (2 Corinthians 6:17)
Live a victorious life in Jesus after death to the world! Die to this world so you can live this life to live again.
