Remember your role

So often these days we hear about teamwork and partnership. God said in Genesis that it is not good for man to be alone. In Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, we find some reasons for this. "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."

Jesus can give us newness of life

Because Jesus died for us and then rose from the grave, we also can rise up in two ways. First, we can have new and different life, but also, after we die, we can go to a new and exciting place (heaven).
