Jesus: The Resurrection and the Life
“I am the resurrection and the life.” – John 11:26
Have you really thought how important it is to have a proper belief of Jesus? With His fifth “I am” statement, Jesus challenges us to look deep at our belief in Him. It is through a personal belief in Jesus and what He has done that resurrection and eternal life our possible. “He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” – Jesus (John 11:25).
Too many people believe it is about who you are or what you do that will get you eternal life, but it’s not about those things; it is about what you believe. Whoever believes in Christ has spiritual life that death cannot overcome or lessen in any way. When we realize Jesus’ power and how wonderful his offer to us is, how can we help but commit our lives to him!
To quote Jesus, “Do you believe this?” (John 11:26) To those of us who believe this, what a wonderful assurance and certainty we have: “Because I live, you also will live.” – Jesus (John 14:19)
