And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak, 14 knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you. 15 For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. —2 Corinthians 4:13-15.
The Christian knows that Jesus is risen from the dead and that he, too, will be raised one day to be present with his risen Lord. This encourages his faith and emboldens him to speak for Christ. [The Bible Panorama.]
