1 Corinthians 15:20
But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
Christ rose, not as a freak of nature, but as a pioneer. At present, we know the way into the tomb pretty well. But the reality is, we will walk back out one of these days–as he did. Thanks be to God for the conquest of death. We will doze off in the grave for a while, but soon he will return to wake us.
