Then God did something wonderful.
The same God who made the world,
rescued Israel, and sent Jesus—
he did the most wonderful, surprising thing of all.
God raised Jesus from the dead.
But Jesus didn’t just rise from the dead;
he defeated death
so it wouldn’t have power over us any longer.
Jesus made it possible for us to be God’s people again.
He made it possible for us to live the way God wants.
