Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25,26 ESV
Do you believe this? When you read these verses, do truly believe what they say? Do you believe that your belief in Christ gives you everlasting life in Him?
Jesus is making an I am statement in this passage, he proclaims Himself to be the resurrection and the life. In doing so He is letting it be known that the only way to experience resurrection and life is through belief in Him. The believers hope is in the resurrection and life eternal.
What an amazing thought, we can live for ever because of Jesus. Those of us who have come to realize without Jesus this life is all there is and have been obedient to His gospel now have an eternal destination. The grave is not our final destination. Heaven is where we are bound.
So today let’s live life like it will never end, because in Jesus it won’t. We will live on in eternity forever with Him!
