If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands (Job 14:14, 15).
Is there life after death? Our hearts find no sure answer in science or philosophy. This question regarding the nature of man must be answered by God, who made man. Only the Creator knows the future of the race. Our text voices the age-old question, "If a man die, shall he live again?” Then comes the answer by divine inspiration: "Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.”
Jesus stood at the tomb of His friend and cried, "Lazarus, come forth,” and he that had been dead came forth. He did not walk forth, for he was bound with graveclothes, which had to be loosened before he could move. He came forth by the power of God. Not one of God’s children will be forgotten. They will all hear the call of the Life-giver.
On his seventieth birthday Victor Hugo wrote: "Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart. The nearer I approach the end, the plainer I hear around me the immortal symphonies of the worlds which invite me.” The true Christian always has eternal spring in his heart, because the nearer he gets to the end of this life, the nearer he approaches the beginning of another—an immortal life, which is the gift of God. Our Saviour said: "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die” (John 11:25, 26).
The Holy Scriptures answer the question Will men live again? Yes, they will live. But when? Our answer, as far as God’s people are concerned, is found in John 6:40: "And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
MEDITATION PRAYER: "I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness” (Psalms 17:15).
