Daily Devotional Details



“This is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.” JOHN 6:39

In John 17:12, Jesus said that none of His people will be lost. But here in John 6, Jesus says that no part of you will be lost. What does that mean? Jesus is referring to the resurrection body. This is made clear when Jesus says that He will “raise it up on the last day.”

When the moment of death comes, the soul is separated from the body. The body will be laid to rest, and over time it will decay. God said, “For you are dust, and to dust you shall return” (Gen. 3:19). However, this is not the end of the body.

When Jesus said that He would “lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day,” He was saying, “Not only will I save each one of you, but I will redeem each part of you. I will not lose your soul or your body. I will lose nothing of all that He has given to me.”

Over time, your body declines: your eyes need stronger glasses, your hearing needs some assistance, your aches and pains increase, and your mind gets slower. You experience a sense of loss, and the worst thing about this is that you know it is not going to get better.

But the will of God is that every part of you will be redeemed. The mission of Jesus is more than saving your soul. He came to bring you, body and soul, into the joy of His presence forever. No part of you will be left behind.

Your hearing, seeing, remembering, running, singing, and dancing will all be wonderfully restored and raised to a new level in a body modeled on the resurrection body of Jesus. And all this, Jesus says, is the will of God.
