Jesus Is the Resurrection

John 11.25 26

John 11:21-27

Friends, if you knew for a fact that this life was the entirety of your existence, how would you feel? I am pretty certain most of us would feel as Mary and Martha seemed to have felt: hopeless and sad. Their beloved brother was dead, and under this scenario, he was simply gone; in this world view he was just a clump of cells which had ceased functioning. That may be the saddest outlook on life that could possibly be.

Yet, these sisters certainly did not seem to be without hope. We see that Martha, although a bit miffed that Jesus had taken so long to get to them, believed that her brother would yet have eternal life. She knew her brother’s earthly life had ended, but that she would be with him again someday.

Then in one of the most hopeful passages in all of Scripture, Jesus spoke, and Lazarus returned to life! Jesus is the resurrection for all who believe, and He proved it conclusively in that instant.

If this life is all we have, how could we not be sad and hopeless? Frankly, life stinks sometimes, if not a LOT of the time. For many on this earth, life is certainly not its own reward. Despite what many teach, this is even true for those who believe. Friends, Jesus has overcome this life and death as well, and in Him someday we too can be resurrected to the new and glorious eternity.

    What I wrote: “Wow when you said “Then in one of the most hopeful passages in all of Scripture” I think you touched on something. The truth of the reality of the resurrection in this passage is definitely meant to move us with the hope that we have in Christ! A life of hope after death! And a hope that shapes our present life and how we live before death!”
