John 11 - Resurrection Life

Luke 11:25 Resurrection Life #220

In anticipation of Easter this coming Sunday and the opportunity to celebrate our risen King, I want to share John 11:25-26, which says, Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

If you were to back up and read the verses prior, you would find that Lazaraus had died. In the verse I want to focus on today, Jesus was speaking to Martha and Mary. In the midst of fear, he made the statement that not only does he give life, but he is life. Jesus is the resurrection and the life! When people believe in Jesus, they get to share in the same resurrected life. Jesus can bring life to anything with his resurrection power. He is not restricted or intimidated by any area of your life that looks dead.

At the end of the verse the challenge Jesus gives Martha is that of belief. The hope for you should be that your answer echos Martha’s in verse John 11:27, ”Yes, Lord; I Believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is come into the world”. One day soon, for those who have put their trust, faith, and belief in Jesus Christ, they will see the glory of God and spend eternity with him.

Although to some it might seem like Easter is an annual celebration focused on Easter egg hunts and good food, that is not the case. It is something we should celebrate every day – the life we have gained because of the death and resurrection of Christ. There is power in the cross. There is power in the resurrection of Jesus Christ! Whatever areas of your life look like dead ends, know that God’s resurrection power can bring them back to life.
