And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,…
If this earth could but have its mantle torn away for a little while, if the green sod could be cut from it, and we could look about six feet deep into its bowels, what a strange world it would seem! What should we see? Bones, carcasses, rottenness, worms and putrifying corruption. And you would say, Can these dry bones live? Can they again start up into being? Yes, "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, the dead shall be raised." God speaks — they are alive! See them scattered! bone comes to his bone. See them naked! flesh comes upon them. See them still lifeless. "Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain!" When the wind of the Holy Spirit comes, they live; and they stand upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Will there be any longer doubt among men of God's power in having raised His own Son from the dead? And not only so, but of having exalted Him to His throne in heaven above?
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
