We are called to be raised to be with Christ, both now and at the Resurrection. Salvation involves a process of seeking first the Kingdom and God's righteousness, which requires diligence by all involved. The will of God is that in the Resurrection we are to receive something so fabulous that Scripture does not even attempt to describe its details. A future so great is vital for us to focus on, since it is God's ultimate goal for you and me to receive. Keeping that incredible gift in mind can help one endure trials throughout the process.
